"“Stz’uminus Storied Places: A Youth-Involved Digital Mapping Project to Mobilize Hul’qumi’num Place-Names and Place-Based Stories" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C., <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <>

Abstract: Indigenous place-names are more than simply words decorating and denoting places on a map. Place-names contain within them many layers of knowledge, including the physical appearance of the environment, resource procurement, territoriality, cultural identity, mythology, and history, often revealed through place-based oral histories and traditional knowledge held by experts within a community. The Stz’uminus Storied Places project aims not only to document Elders stories as they relate to the landscape but also to engage the current generation of youth in the research. At the heart of this project is the map-making process, where youth record video of their Elders telling stories about local places and Hul’qumi’num place names. These video-stories are then embedded into a digital map for the community to use as a teaching tool in the local school as well as a communication tool to raise awareness among the non-aboriginal community about the history and agency of the land. Drawing on relevant literature, I discuss how this project may fit into claims that make the connection between participatory video and empowerment, caring for place and health and wellness, and research processes and intergenerational knowledge transfer. Furthermore, I critically consider the opportunities and conundrums related to publishing dynamic place-based knowledge in a web atlas.

Abstract: What happens when people are asked to 'turn on their senses' instead of sharing their thoughts through interviews or focus groups? In what 'sense' does this increase our understanding on how people connect to their living environment? What are the benefits and challenges related to a multisensory engagement of research participants in a public space? These and other questions were explored in a set of case studies conducted in a neighbourhood in development of a medium size Flemish city. A walking interview was conducted with inhabitants living in and artists connected to the neighbourhood. The walk included stops at predefined cartographic nodes on a map where the senses were intentionally and actively used to generate meaning. The participants (a) helped us create narratives or (b) integrated their personal analysis of what they had experienced during the walk in a piece of art. Both pathways will be illustrated.

3. O'Neill, Tara. "STEMS^2: Empowering Educators and the Youth They Teach to Re-envision STEM Education Through the Lens of Place and Sense of Place" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association of Teacher Educators, Flamingo Las Vegas, Las Vegas, NV, <Not Available>. 2019-06-19 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: With shifts in teaching and learning standards, growing environmental global threats, and youths' decreased connection between careers in Western science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) indigenous and ancestral ways of knowing, our society must change the way we treat our “place” and teach our children. This paper shares the design of a new construct called STEMS^2 (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Social Sciences and Sense of Place) and the structure of the master’s concentration ( grounded in the STEMS^2 construct.

The STEMS^2 construct exists in three parts: a) theory, b) pedagogy and c) teacher leadership movement. The theory is grounded in four bodies of literature: 1) STEM education (Flores et al. 2002; Gutstein 2003; Rogers & Portsmore 2004; Subotnik et al. 2010), 2) culture-based education (Ladson-Billings 1995; Gay 2010; Kana‘iaupuni et. al., 2010), 3) place-based education (Gruenewald 2003; Lim & Calabrese Barton 2010; Gruenewald & Smith, 2014) and 4) indigenous education (Kanahele, 1986; Barnhardt, 2005; Smith, 2001; Bang & Medina 2010). This literature is used in a dynamic nature to both build the STEMS^2 framework and continuously re-evaluate the framework as it becomes actualized in practice.

Two essential features of STEMS^2 pedagogy are experiential learning and service learning. Experiential learning existed for generations in Hawai‘i before Western contact and has since become a proven educational method across multiple cultures (Wurdinger & Carlson 2010). A fundamental learning strategy traditionally used by Native Hawaiians is ma ka hana ka `ike (“from the doing, comes the knowledge”). Similarly, a definition of experiential learning in modern education is “the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” (Kolb et al. 2002).

The STEMS^2 master’s concentration is an intensive 13 month master’s program that works with informal and formal educators across the PK-20 spectrum to meet three primary objectives: 1) build participants’ capacity to serve as educational leaders in their communities; 2) increase educators’ knowledge of and ability to design STEMS^2 units that incorporate Mathematics and Language Arts Common Core (CCSI) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies with indigenous knowledge, skills and practices, and 3) to support teachers’ implementation of their place and culture-based STEMS^2 units.

In order to meet these goals, the 13 month experience consists of two bookend three-week in person summer sessions with on-line class meetings in the fall and spring. Approximately 20 teachers per year start the first three-week summer experience building an understanding of the STEMS^2 construct and a sense of self in the STEMS^2 program by engaging in a series of experiential and service oriented learning experiences in Western, Indigenous and ancestral learning spaces. During the fall and spring on-line courses, student builds a sense of STEMS^2 theory and pedagogy via readings, discussions and in designing and implementing STEMS^2 pedagogy. In the final three-week in-person summer experience, participants’ develop their sense of self as teacher leaders.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Places and place characteristics are important for understanding and preventing crime. Research shows that crimes tend to cluster at particular places, and these concentrations are related to social and physical features of “micro” settings that provide opportunities for crime. In this paper, we expand upon recent theoretical developments and research findings that focus on the place-crime relationship. In particular, we examine research that explores the importance of places, various definitions of “place,” and how crime can be prevented through responsible place management. We conclude with a discussion of recent advances of in place-crime theory and suggestions for future place-based research and policy.
