Faculty mentor: Leilani Taholo

This presentation is focused on research that has been done on Pacific Islanders, the Pacific Islander culture, and Pacific Islander perspectives to examine the inequalities experienced among their youth within their native and westernized spaces. These factors help explain how Polyneisan youth experience levels of suicidal ideologies and cultural shame, and help identify what protective measures there are or that are needed in order to disrupt the shame and suicidal processes among the Pacific.
