TIANA N. LIUFAU
creative director x raʻatira
Our founder Estella "Nonosina" Reid was affectionately known as "Gram". Born in American Sāmoa (Faleniu) she eventually planted new roots in California where she built a home for the Polynesian arts to thrive. Through the medium of music & dance Nonosina has become a hub for Polynesian culture to be taught & celebrated in California. We honor & pay tribute to our founder for creating the safe space that has become a second home to thousands of dancers.
"E LELE LE GOGOSINA, AE MAʻAU LAVA I LE VAI"
No matter where the Nonosina may travel, it will always return home
