Towards the end of the first COVID-19 lockdown in early 2020, in Aotearoa New Zealand, the authors conducted a small-scale study to gain insight into children's responses to the pandemic restrictions.

Aporosa, S. Apo; Fa'avae, David Taufui Mikato – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021

The appointment of the University of Waikato's first Assistant Vice-Chancellor Pacific in February 2019 was an important milestone, not only recognising years of work and dedication by numerous Pacific and Maori staff, but triggering a new strategic direction for 'Pacific at Waikato'.

Taito, Mere – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
Every poem has a creation talanoa: a story of how it was written. In a Rotuman context, 'talanoa' or story, can either be a 'rogrog/o' or 'hanuju'. From conception to final drafting, the creation hanuju can reveal the often-volatile relationship between a poet's internal self-talk and external historical and contemporary experiences. Memories…

Reynolds, Martyn – Waikato Journal of Education, 2019
Like all acts of naming, the term 'Pasifika', which is used to refer collectively to persons with connections to Pacific Island nations living in Aotearoa New Zealand, can be used to represent or to misrepresent, to enable or to control.
