Title: Kainga : an ancient solution for contemporary challenges of Tongan studemts' academic achievement in New Zealand tertiary education

Author: kalavite, Telesia
Subject:  Academic achievement
 Academic achievement|Pacific Area
Volume: Vol.32, 2012
Collation: p. 1-10

Abstract: There are many successful Tongans in academia but in New Zealand there is a concern about the low academic achievement of Tongan students in tertiary education. This paper discusses the importance and impact of kāinga (blood/kin or social relationships) between Tongan tertiary students and their supporters; the pule‘anga (bureaucracy), their fāmili (family), siasi (church) and fonua (wider community), towards their education. These relationships between Tongan tertiary students and their supporters can either enhance or constrain their academic achievement. Tongan students are academically successful when the different contexts of kāinga in terms of tā (time) and vā (space) intersect or interact harmoniously within and between each other. Thus, kāinga is an ancient solution for contemporary challenges for Tongan students in New Zealand tertiary education.

Title: Kiribati game development: cultural transmission, communities of creation, and marketing

Author: Voogt, Alex de
Subject:  Cultural evolution
 Gaming
Volume: Vol.38 no.1, 2018
Collation: p. 23-38

Abstract: The people of Kiribati play a broad assortment of card and board games. The game rules show several innovations that were made outside the purview of the games’ manufacturers. The presence and regional development of proprietary board games illustrates product development scenarios that are counterintuitive to marketers. Using game boards and game rules collected in Kiribati, this study offers an explanation on how game development in Micronesia can be understood using cultural transmission theory by locating the Republic of Kiribati both geographically and economically within the Pacific Islands economies and their communities and within their own anthropological context. The findings emphasize the importance of understanding regional and country-specific cultural practices when applying principles of product development, placement and distribution.

Volume: Vol.27 no.1, 2004
Collation: p. 23-38

Abstract: In the colonial era, artists—painters, novelists, photographers and filmmakers alike—present a vision of a precolonial paradise, a pure product of Western imagination rather than of their knowledge of the islands they describe. By means of this skew, they gained a hearing for critiques of a colonisation that they describe too simplistically. Yet they often prefer to denounce the ‘other colonisation’, that of the rival power, rather than that which was their own country’s doing.
