  • Samoan death rituals in a New Zealand context

    Seiuli, Byron Malaela Sotiata (2017)
    Given that dialogue relating to death and grief for many Samoans still remains in the realm of tapu (sacred) or s? (protected), few attempts have been made by researchers of Samoan heritage to understand whether the cultural ...
  • Sampling community discourses as a method for assessing "public opinion"

    Guerin, Bernard (2004-09-01)
    In working with the topics of racial discrimination and household energy reductions it is clear that just measuring attitudes is no longer sufficient. We need a fuller social context to understand what is said about these ...
