    Abstract

    Cultural responsive pedagogy provide Cook Islands teacher’s an opportunity to overcome challenges and therefore create opportunities for teachers’ professional development. This plays a significant role in providing teacher training as a lifelong professional experience. This paper investigates how culturally responsive pedagogy could be used in overcoming the challenges and generating opportunities for teachers’ professional development in Cook Islands schools which is central to this argument. This paper also draws on evidence from a multi-faceted research study into culturally responsive pedagogy (Airini et al, 2007). Broadly viewed, the research seeks into further understandings of indigenous education and the conversion of educational theory into practices that support positive futures for indigenous peoples. More narrowly, the research explores culturally responsive pedagogy in a specific context, that of the Cook Islands.
