Silina Turaga Aina: Growing up at the Center

Silina Aina

It’s safe to say Silina Turaga Aina grew up as one of a small group of keiki at the Polynesian Cultural Center when her parents — Meleki and Sophia Turaga — were among the earliest people in the 1960s to work in the Fijian Village . . . and she’s still here, displaying and sharing her skills as a long-time weaver in the Hawaiian Village.
