|Abstract:||Papa lo'i kalo, a system of integrated wetland taro patches, are serving as sites of place-based learning for schools and the community. The taro plant and the lo'i inform students about the traditional knowledge of taro farming and create a space in which the power of learning and teaching is most influenced by the community and the place itself.|
The educational experience at the loʻi raises questions about the normative content of curriculum, control of education, and approaches to pedagogy. Using student reflections and an oral history with a taro farmer, this thesis will explore the loʻi as a critical place that has the potential to reshape students' understanding of Hawaiʻi, its history, and the Native Hawaiian community.
