1. Cowley-Malcolm, Esther (Esther Tumama). Some Samoans' perceptions, values and beliefs on the role of parents and children within the context of aiga/family and the influence of fa'asamoa and the church on Samoan parenting .

Degree: AUT University

This qualitative study describes maternal and paternal experiences of thirty-five Samoans living in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand. The study was conducted in order to establish, “What, if any changes to parenting practices have occurred since their family migrated into New Zealand?” Through interviews, respondents discussed their values, attitudes and beliefs and how they perceived that they were brought up by their own parents. They also described and discussed their own roles as parents and the roles of their children. They also discussed how the church influenced the ways in which their parents parented them and the way they themselves parent their children. Respondents were chosen via a snowball technique of referrals from four different church ministers. The four churches were selected on the recommendation of one Samoan Church Minister as being representative of the Samoan community. Four ministers were interviewed, along with four elders and five parents from each church. Seven other people from outside these churches, four not church attenders were also interviewed in order to be able to further explore the importance and effects of the churches. The theoretical approach engaged a combination of the principles of Grounded Theory (Glaser & Strauss, 1967) and the ‘Fa’afaletui,’ (Tamasese, 1997.) The latter is a Samoan framework which gives a multi-layered approach to data interpretation using a range of lenses and perspectives. In conducting this investigation, the combination of Western and Samoan frameworks was appropriate especially given the cultural sensitivities that were apparent around the topic matter and the ethnicity of the respondents and the researcher. Earlier findings, concerning discipline by (Fairbairn-Dunlop, 2002) were affirmed, as were findings about fa’alavelave from the earlier study into parenting practices (McCallum et al, 2000). In this present study, it was found that enculturation (i.e changes in culture) over time, modified parenting practices and specifically that inter-generational perspectives about parenting practices were apparent. Evidence of conflicting approaches to values between generations was encountered and a range of rituals were adapted as a consequence of migration and time; discipline and fa’alavelave were prime examples of this. The relative paucity of a body of Pasifika literature and Pacific research by Pacific people, from which a theoretical foundation for a study of this kind could be developed, was seen to be problematic. It is concluded that enculturation following migration spawns a reconstruction of values and associated practices in parenting and that previously held core values concerning discipline, the church and the family become altered over time and generations. It is also suggested that future research should seek to corroborate the findings of this study by examining the parenting practices of the next generation. Advisors/Committee Members: Crothers, Charles (advisor), Hassal, Ian (advisor).

3. Tiatia, Ramona. Family-Centred Healing At Home: A Samoan Epistemology of Samoan Families’ Experiences of Home Dialysis and Home Detention in Aotearoa/New Zealand .

Degree: University of Otago

Home dialysis and home detention are home-based public services increasingly used in Samoan households living in Aotearoa/New Zealand. They are cheaper than institutionally-provided hospital and correctional services and save the government millions of dollars; savings which do not seem to be transferred to the households which switch to home-based services. This thesis considers the role of housing in Samoan families living in Aotearoa/New Zealand, both symbolically and practically. It analyses in depth the way these two different public services are adapted within the home built environment and the effect these have on the lives of Samoan occupants. The quality of housing and built environments are a vital and significant component of home-based services, yet, largely ignored in the literature and state policies as having an effect on the health of occupants. In this qualitative research I used a multiple-case study approach to investigate the housing experiences of five Samoan dialysis patients (n=4) and their carers (n=8); and two Samoan home detainees (n=2) and a sponsor (n=1). Using an iterative approach of the Photovoice method, disposable cameras were used by the participants to produce photographs about their experiences. In consultation with Samoan elders, I also developed an epistemological model of Samoan health and well-being based on the traditional house and descriptions of tides and winds. The participants’ photographs and in-depth interviews in the Samoan and English languages were matched to the three stratified areas of the Samoan traditional dwelling: front of house, middle of house and back of house. Key informant interviews with public service officials were also analysed to provide important information about the Wellington Hospital Renal Unit (n=2) and the New Zealand Prison Services of the Corrections Department (n=5). Home-based services, when compared to hospital and prison institutional services, gave the participants many advantages. These included the convenience of being at home, reduced transport and travelling costs, spending more time with family and friends and in some cases participation in vocational and rehabilitation programmes. Samoan culture provided a useful framework for families to respond to the sensitive issues and obligations associated with palliative renal care, death, spirituality, gender arrangements, transplantation, cultural identity and restorative justice. Other unexpected and less favourable outcomes associated with home-dialysis were fuel poverty, lack of indoor storage, minimal spatial heating and issues of waste disposal. Samoan participants expected far more support at home from public authorities than they in fact received and many of them experienced stigmatisation and social isolation. These everyday experiences forced some dialysis patients to give up home-based services and return to hospital services, which are more expensive. For some home detainees, spousal violence and problems with other family members increased… Advisors/Committee Members: Howden-Chapman, Philippa L (advisor).
