Taiwan-Aotearoa Indigenous Education Forum
You are invited to join the ‘Austronesian Reconnection’ to celebrate and further connections between indigenous higher education in Taiwan and New Zealand.
The traditions and cultures of Indigenous peoples in Taiwan, New Zealand and other Austronesian countries have dramatically shifted since the arrival of colonizers. Fortunately, within the last 30 years, indigenous higher education has played a major role in the preservation of traditional knowledge as well as signaling its relevance in contemporary contexts. Given this setting, we hope to reconnect with our brothers and sisters to co-develop Austronesian indigenous systems, train indigenous talents on both the local and global scale. In addition to embarking onto a journey of mutually beneficial collaboration, this event will also discuss the possibility of seeking reconciliation through education as exemplified by Wānanga where indigenous worldviews and values are held in the core of their practices.
We are nurtured by and connected via land and ocean and we will work together to continue the legacy of our ancestors’ knowledge and values.
