The Pacific Allied (Women's) Council Inspires Faith Ideals Concerning All Incorporation (P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A) was established in 1977 to create an opportunity for Pacific women to support and encourage one another to participate in the wider community, especially in issues that affect them and their families. P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A has branches from Whangarei to Invercargill and these branches are affiliated to the national body. Internationally members of the organisation have participated in the United Nations Committee on the status of women and women's conferences held in the Pacific. Mere Tepaeru Tereora was the fifth National President for P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A, and the mu'umu'u dresses were made for Mrs Tereora during her time as president by various branches of the organisation. The t-shirts are also important examples of material culture relating to the P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A organisation and the Newtown branch.
