Abstract:Abstract
This qualitative, autoethnographic study utilized an indigenous lens to investigate how Reggio Emilia and Hawaiian Culture-Based Education philosophies have transformed my practice and Hawaiian identity. Through the Hawaiian frameworks of moʻokūʻauhau and ‘ōiwi moʻolelo, this inquiry examined my own past, present, and future narratives to develop three themes—trusting the strength of the child, kuleana (a sense of responsibility), and huliau (a time for transformation). Implications of this research are to explore how to develop Hawaiian spirituality in young children, integrate Hawaiian Culture-Based Education into early childhood settings, and create culturally-integrated language learning opportunities. This study recommends that educators operationalize stronger, positive images of the child, Hawaiian Culture-Based Education into the lives of children and their families, the co-construction of knowledge, and advocacy for childhood—educating children as children.
