The Talanoa with both Dr. Whitebear and Palaita will be centered around our services provided to Pacific Islander students through their indigenous identity. As movement is taking place to disaggregate and move Pacific Islander identity away the term Asian Pacific Islander, what questions and concerns should we have as we “share” the identity as indigenous peoples. How does this project our work to speak for ourselves and remind in solidarity with our community partners.
