Taiwan-Aotearoa Indigenous Education Forum

The forum series is a highlight of the ‘Taiwan-Aotearoa Connection: South-bound Indigenous Education’ project funded by the Ministry of Education. Focusing on training both community and international indigenous talents and the experience and perspective provided by the two wānanga executives, the forums offer potential framework and pathways to practicing indigenous education amidst transitional justice. The project director Dr. Jolan Hsieh ( Bavaragh Dagalomai / 謝若蘭) also arranged a visit to Tafalong, Karoro’an, and Pate Rungan communities to see the history of Pangcah traditional house, Kebalan traditional weaving crafts and industry, and discuss opportunities and challenges encountered by indigenous advocates and artists.
