Education and Identity: A Reconsideration of Some Models of Acculturation and Identity.
Fitzgerald, Thomas K.
The paper is a report of research conducted on the question of acculturation and identity among Maori college graduates in New Zealand. Situational approach and role analysis were employed as the instruments with the sample of graduates from Maori University. The study concluded that the Maori is able to avoid assimilation into the dominant culture by adopting a behavior and identity best described as biculturalism. A caveat is given that the Maori situation cannot be equated with the Black or Indian in America. (Author/CWB)
