ECE webinar: Pepe meamea in the spirit of the collective – embedding Samoan indigenous philosophy in ECE for Samoan children under two

COMING UP: 20:00 MONDAY SEPTEMBER 6

This panel discussion will be based upon a two-year TLRI (Teaching and Learning Research Initiative) study that aims to develop New Zealand’s first Samoan indigenous framework for Samoan infant and toddler pedagogy in early childhood education.

In this session, Dr Jacoba Matapo from The University of Auckland, Dr Sala Faasaulala Tagoilelagi-Leota the director of SAASIA, and Dr Tafili Utumapu-McBride from AUT discuss Samoan conceptualisations of pepe meamea (infant and toddler) as part of the research findings. Through deeply rooted Samoan collective ontologies, this research mobilises Samoan Indigenous knowledge systems to engage all teachers of Samoan pepe meamea in transforming practice, generating and contributing to ECE communities in the context of infant and toddler pedagogy.
