Stella is a thinking woman's magazine from the Pacific Islands. The magazine celebrates the indigenous voice of Pacific Islanders covering fashion, health, travel, arts, and life across our region. Following publishing trends from across the globe, Stella shares uplifting stories from our Pacific sisters and brothers across the region in all walks of life. We aim to challenge the stereotypes and share good ideas.
We are all part of a living culture in the Pacific Islands, but we’re also in a constant tug-of-war with influences from the global economy, environment, and lifestyles. Here in Papua New Guinea we take real pride in our heritage, whether that be Southern, Momase, the Islands, the Highlands, or an exciting mix of these or other near and far cultures. At Stella, we think acceptance and curiosity for new and different things, things that influence us positively, are admirable traits and something we encourage in each issue. Wherever you are from, this issue we hope you find something new to you that will make you smile, think, and even act, whether that be getting outdoors, supporting some local music, or challenging some social issues.
