Remembering our Future: Higher Education Quality Assurance and Indigenous Epistemology

  • Manulani Aluli Meyer

Abstract

This article introduces the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium - WINHEC - a multi-nation effort to accredit, empower and thus
affirm native control of indigenous higher learning. The unfixed meaning of quality and assurance with regard to higher education systems is
deconstructed and reconstructed within an indigenous paradigm. Three WINHEC ideals, Language, Culture and Spiritual Beliefs, are outlined and
contextualized within WINHEC's initial accreditation efforts in Aotearoa. Finally, a discussion of the Triangulation of Meaning, an ancient way to exhibit an embodied epistemology extending into spiritual acumen is brought forth to invigorate indigeneity and its role in world awakening.
