Colin and Zelda King were presented the Heritage Award at the Pacific Islander Festival. This husband-and-wife team represents Fiji at the festival each year. Colin King is the trade and marketing officer for the Fiji Trade Commission in Los Angeles. While serving in this distinguished post for the government of Fiji, he continues his volunteer work as a historian and teacher of Fijian culture. Zelda King (pictured above, left, with Nancy Weintraub, vice president, development, Aquarium of the Pacific) has served on the board of the Pacific Islander Community Council since 1995.
The Kings’ countless hours of volunteer work in the preservation and teaching of Fijian culture, including event planning and grant writing, have made a major contribution to Pacific Islander communities locally and worldwide.
