    Abstract

    This research report presents the details and findings of a research project commissioned by Adult and Community Education (ACE) Aotearoa, entitled Pasifika Success as Pasifika in Aotearoa New Zealand (PSAPiA). Intended to be the first of a series providing Pasifika participants in Aotearoa New Zealand with the opportunity to collectively and coherently describe success as Pasifika according to their own insights and aspirations, the focus of this current project was on seeking and articulating a collective conceptualisation of ‘literacy’ and ‘success’ and the link between the two from the perspective of Pasifika peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand. The project’s three-part design incorporated a review of selected relevant literature, Pasifika consultation groups, and wider consultations with Pasifika via an online survey. The project’s findings seek to enrich traditionally economically-driven perspectives, and to increase the relevance of ‘literacy’ conceptualisations to Pasifika peoples by drawing on a sociocultural perspective of literacy and the culturally defined insights, values, and aspirations of Pasifika peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand.
