Faircloth, Susan C.; Hynds, Anne; Jacob, Helen; Green, Clint; Thompson, Patrick
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v29 n3 p359-380 2016
In this paper, we present preliminary findings from a unique collaborative research project involving six Deaf Maori rangatahi (youth) in Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland), Aotearoa New Zealand. This study utilized kaupapa whanau (research family) protocols, established in consultation with two cultural advisory groups within New Zealand and the young people themselves, combined with elements of photovoice methodology, to explore the identities of these youth. Emerging findings highlight the complex nature of these youth's cultural identity as well as specific issues related to access to and participation within te ao Maori (the Maori world). Specific and critical reflections on the research process are also included.
