STEMS² Symposium

Poster Title

Ka Ulana ‘ana: Weaving Identity & Curriculum


This presentation highlights how a Native Hawaiian teacher foundationally uses indigenous epistemology, to teach Colonial knowledge and science content in combination with state standards. As a student of STEMS^2 pedagogy, this educator looks at the impact identity has on their teaching philosophy, and the reciprocal relationship of aʻo (teaching/learning.)
