One of the top online resources on Hawaiian music is Mele.com. https://mele.com/ It's a great place to learn more about Hawaiian music and culture, find out about concerts in your area and to purchase CDs.
Te Papa Curator, Sean Mallon's blog is always of interest. His most recent is on Fijian whale tooth graffiti ... Fascinating! http://blog.tepapa.govt.nz/author/seanjmallon/
Sheppard Software Learning Game has a fun interactive site at http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/Oceania_Geography.htm Here is an easy, fun way to familiarize yourself with the geography of the Pacific.
For news on the Pacific, see The Pacific Islands Report: http://pidp.eastwestcenter.org/pireport featuring daily news stories, extensive links to other sites and resources, as well as a searchable archive. Also, Radio Australia's program, Pacific Beat has news pieces of interest: http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/radio/programsaz This program brings interviews with Pacific Island leaders, newsmakers and people.
The Easter Island Foundation (EIF) was initially started in order to open a library on the island that would be accessible to Islanders. Since that time, the EIF has expanded their scope to research in the greater Pacific. They publish a number of books on Pacific history and culture, as well as the Rapa Nui Journal with news from the island. Also, their online Moai Sightings is fun!
