Editor's Note: Patisepa was born in Samoa at Afega Village. Her parents were , She attended Samoa College in 1965, trained as a teacher and served Samoa through several schools before emigrating to

New Zealand. In her new country she met her husband Brian who encouraged her to pursue her teaching career. After a successful stint in the Primary sector she joined Auckland Teacher's Training College, and the University of Auckland when the two bodies amalgamated. She served as where she left us on the 25th of February 2019 for greener pastures on the other side. She's been a pioneer and stalwart of bilingual education as an effective tool for our Pasifika communities in New Zealand. In that role she was an educator, facilitator, researcher, builder of schools among othersPasifika parents who attend education consultations do not normally challenge the dominant discourses of New Zealand education and the constructions of their identities in those discourses. This article explores some theoretical perspectives on why parents do not speak out, and reveals a Samoan perspective on “the culture of silence” which may be described as ways of knowing when to speak and when not to speak, and its relationship to education. Also explored are the social, political and educational factors in Aotearoa that contribute to the “silencing” of Pasifika peoples. Research into an additive bilingual education programme, structured within a collaborative empowerment process of partnership with parents and communities, enables the paper’s author to employ Pasifika voices in challenging educators to support the unlocking process of their silence and silencing.
