Tiki Oasis monthly Diversity & Inclusion series focuses on subjects of history, appropriation vs appreciation of cultures, minority cultures, Tiki Culture* and Mid-Century Americana. The goal of this series is to provide a forum for education, knowledge and conversation. Through this series we invite marginalized groups to amplify their voices to share their knowledge and experiences, we invite advocates and allies to ask questions, and we invite all to contribute to the broader discussion on diversity, inclusion, representation and equality in the Tiki community.
* Tiki Culture, Tiki Style or Polynesian Pop refers to the mainland America art movement that flourished in America and across the globe between the mid-1930s until the late 1970s and has experienced a revival from the late 1990s to the present.
