Description
Pasifika is a voyage of inquiry learning for social studies students at Level 5 in the New Zealand Curriculum.
New to this edition

New content and focus

  • The authors have retained material from Pacific Island Communities that is still relevant and of high interest, but have reorganised, updated and added new content to reflect recent changes in the Pacific region as well as in the New Zealand Social Studies Curriculum.
  • The book is now in full colour throughout.
  • Pasifika has been selected as the title for this new edition because it best represents the people and places of the communities of the Southwest Pacific, including Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Features & benefits

Pasifika contains a wide variety of resources for team processing and inquiry and reflects the authors’ own experience of living and teaching in Pasifika communities in the Pacific Islands and in New Zealand.

Pasifika is divided into three parts:

  1. Pasifika places and people – sets the scene in the tropical islands of the Southwest Pacific.
  2. Pasifika communities – presents seven communities for research, each representing a different perspective.
  3. New Zealand and Pasifika – examines the position of Pasifika people living in New Zealand and explores the relationships and interactions between New Zealand and our Pacific Island neighbours.
