Abstract: Penina uliuli: Contemporary challenges in mental health for Pacific peoples (Culbertson, Agee, & Makasiale, 2007) is one of the few books published in the area of Pasifika mental health, written by Pacific peoples themselves in their desire to have their voices heard in the areas of theory, enculturation, holism, and best-practice. The purpose of this essay is to explore how this book developed, and the role and importance of metaphor in cross-cultural mental health research and practice, in the hope that this reflection on the creation of this resource will make a contribution to future Pasifika/pālagi collaborations.
