The Interface of Pacific and Other Knowledges in a Supplementary Education Site
Fairbairn-Dunlop, Peggy
Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, v44 n6 p874-894 2014
Because identity (language and culture) are central to Pacific knowledge and knowledge construction processes, Pacific students' educational experiences should be viewed through a cultural lens that sees Pacific knowledge and practices as valid and valued. This study explores the relationship between culture and educational outcomes as seen in how participation in a school Polynesian club (a cultural education supplementary site) builds youth feelings of self-esteem, identity and the confidence to connect to other educational, cultural and social spaces.
