Native Hawaiian Epistemology: Exploring Hawaiian Views of Knowledge.
Meyer, Manu Aluli
Cultural Survival Quarterly, v22 n1 p38-40 Spr 1998
Empiricism is culturally defined in that culture shapes sensory knowledge. Hawaiians recognize senses beyond the five that Western culture recognizes. Hawaiians are not unempirical; they draw conclusions of their own from their empirical experiences. It is time to validate other ways of knowing, long suppressed in the U.S. educational system. (TD)
