Education in 'Aina Pumehana: the Hawaiian-American Student as a Hero. Final Draft.
Howard, Alan
Socialization patterns from a Hawaiian-American community are described in terms of the strategies and tactics utilized by Hawaiian-American children in dealing with the contingencies set for them first by their parents and later by teachers in the public school. Despite poor scholastic performance from the standpoint of educators, the viewpoint is presented that if one looks at the classroom as an interface between ethnic groups, then Hawaiian-American children can be considered heroes for defencing the core values of their culture against the onslaughts of an alien group. The data on which this paper is based were collected over a three-year period between 1965 and 1968 from a Hawaiian homestead community referred to by the pseudonym of "Aina Pumehana. The study was an interdisciplinary effort involving primarily social anthropology and psychology, but including researchers from several other disciplines as well.
