Professor Morgan Tuimaleali'ifano discusses how the teaching of history in Fiji has been decolonized, and how Taiwan and other Pacific nations can work together to create an alternative version of history which incorporates indigenous memory and stands apart from the colonial view of history.

The video was filmed at the 2012 International Austronesian Conference - Weaving Waves' Writings which took place in Taipei at the end of last year. Professor Tuimaleali'ifano is the current Head of the School of Social Sciences at the University of the South Pacific and is a current member of the senate.
