Abstract

This paper describes attempts by educators in the island nations of the South Pacific to ensure that formal education is more culturally inclusive for learners as well as teachers. Now known by many as Oceania, the region continues to deal with its colonial legacy, educators being at the forefront of the struggle to cope with the impact of its particular circumstances and history.
