The thematic currency of this paper is a post–covid concern. My talatalanoa sits alongside Pacific educators’ voices in this volume of the Waikato Journal of Education, colleagues from Aotearoa New Zealand’s Realm Nations of the Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau. While adopting a place-based and Indigeno-centric Pasifika/Pacific gaze through talanoa–vā, an analytical lens centred on unpacking stories and insights, I share my motivations and concerns wayfinding the wave-like changes facing Pasifika/Pacific education’s level of criticality and trajectory within Aotearoa New Zealand.
