12. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
SUPERB! I am very appreciative to have taken Pacific Island Studies 108 from Tricia. She brings such a wealth of knowledge, experience, and perspective to Pacific Island Studies. Not only is she deeply versed and invested in Oceania, but her intimate relationship with these people, and places, gives us a unique lens to explore through. Her relationships with the people and places in Oceania attributed greatly for us to discuss contemporary issues in Oceania. It was engaging and motivating to learn content through stories, first hand accounts, and emotional course material.
i believe that her class was interest and now i have new goals in life.
Excellent, Kumu is a wonderful teacher that makes students change their perspective and broaden horizons.
Very well and i wish she taught more classes.
Tricia Allen help me to understand our connection to our cousin in the South Pacific and also their struggles that they still live through today.
She is a great educator.
good teacher
She's a very good professor and if anyone is looking for a class to take and with whom I prefer you guys take her course. She teaches very well and I understood what I was learning.
Very educated on her subjects that she teaches us.
She is very intuitive and cares about her students.

16. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I appreciated how structured the course was from the very beginning. I am very grateful that our Professor compiled a course reader for this course instead of using the textbook. I truly believe the course reader was the most valuable asset to this course, and demonstrates Triciaʻs care, attention, and passion she has for the Pacific. Each reading was thoughtfully selected, extremely thought provoking, and immensely informative. I donʻt think a book could have given us the scope that Tricia has with her course reader. AND ITʻS CHEAP! THANK YOU!!!!!!!
This class was fun but future note less reading please
That it was fun and I have learned a lot more about Oceania.
I felt that there could be a real text book used in the course if it will be continued.
Great class, I learned so much.
good
My overall of this course is good. I actually learned alot from this class more than I thought I was going to learn.
It was very interesting

39. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Tricia continually showed her concern each class when she would give us chances to discuss our thoughts, feelings, and questions about the issues we were coving (Which were quite sensitive at times). She would inform us of interesting out of class events that related to the Pacific. She continually asked for our input, feedback and suggestions throughout the semester, and she made herself readily available.
yes i would
Kumu is very caring when it comes to students. I truly appreciate that when I found out that my close friend passed away, she showed true concern for me and told me to go home and to go check on my friend. Kumu also showed great concern for her students grades, and frequently checked on us, and gives us many extra credit opportunities to get good grades.
That she wants to see her students pass and learn what she teaches.
She shared important issue that effected many islands in the South Pacific, the people that suffered from military take over of their island.
She always made time to talk to us individually to see where we were at.
updates us with grades and assignments
She would email them and talk to them.
She did grade checks with us every week to ensure we could get the best grade possible.
Kept us updated of all new information and extra credit through email.
40. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I especially liked Triciaʻs first hand stories of her experiences, and observations in Oceania. It really helped to root the knowledge of the course to a sense of place, a sense of people, and how similar we really are.
i like the topic dislike the readings
I liked everything that she taught and how she made slides for learning because I am a visual learner.
I like how we focused on issued that affected the resource and lively hood of the people that lived on these island for generations.
She created the best Power points.
a lot of pictures
I wish she didnt give so much of reading but I understand why she did so we can learn more about the class and the subject we were learning.
The course covered a LOT of material. I felt that I was lost at times becomes there was so much information.
She really showed concern for her students.
41. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Tricia is a BAD ASS! I say this as humbly and respectfully as I can, but, really, Tricia is bad...ass. For instance, on the first day of class there was a wasp in our classroom. She caught the wasp by the wing, and released it outside. Iʻd say, that goes above and beyond the caring concern for the safety of her students. *cough*badass*cough*
say pretty easy going
Someone that is dealing with health issue, she made it to all classes because she cares for her student.
Best teacher ever.
nothing
Honestly she is a very good teacher overall/
I loved her enthusiasm and videos.
She is a very inspiring individual.
42. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Me: "Do you like passionate professors who are deeply knowledgeable in their subject matter to expose you to new ideas, histories and indigenous truths?" Other student: "Yes." Me: "Take Tricia Allen."
i would recommend her because she does not give you to much stress.
Yes, anyone interested in pacific island studies and looking for a new perspective, I strongly recommend Kumu's class.
Yes i would recommend her to other students because you can learn a to more about oceania if they want to learn more about them
Yes, I would recommended her class however, with a better text book.
Yes, because she was easy to follow and was very helpful.
yes, easy course
I recommend that you just do her work she gives out alot of extra credit and I wish I did those because they were very easy
Yes I would if they were interested in these subjects.
yes she is great in what she teaches.
43. Other comments:
I learned a lot in this class. More than I could have possibly imagined (AND Iʻm a Hawaiian Studies major)! I was utterly surprised how much I was ignorant to before this course. Why has no history class before this even glanced in this direction. I strongly believe we have the chance to do something different here at WCC. I am so blessed for the variety of courses offered here to explore the knowledge of this land, Hawaiʻi. However, I think that more courses on other Pacific Island topics would just add to our understanding of Hawaiʻi, and deepen our connections to our island brothers and sisters. Like a course on Mythology of all of Oceania. How amazing would it be to look at the oceanic indigenous mythology and their similarities!
have a good one
Mahalo Tricia Allen for your Aloha and contribution to all native people around the world. Malama pono! Aloha A Hui Hou.
none
I wish she gave us less reading I understand we had to read them to understand the subject but it was just too much but it was good at the same time because I learned alot more of the reading.

5. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
a deeper spiritual connection. more knowledge in this course than any other course I took. very surprised at the amount of knowledge I gained from this class. the best I took here at Windward. Tricia is a huge asset to Windward and the UH system.
The challenge to do good research was a benefit for me. Information about pre-contact life and the place that tattooing had in the lives of Polynesians. Biggest thing was learning that aliʻi women were also tattooed.
I've gained knowledege of pacific hawaiian tattoos
This course gave me an opportunity to learn and understand my own culture better as well as strengthen my bond to indigenous pacific islander or more specifically "Polynesians" through commonalities
I learned not only much about the traditions of the Polynesian people, it's as if I dove into a world that I had no idea was so elaborate and beautiful. I recommend this class for all those seeking more knowledge of where the tattoo itself originated from and how it transformed into what it is today.
History of other places culturally conscious.
Today, I have a better understanding on the history of tattooing and Polynesian tattoo. I enjoyed every minute of this class. Tricia is an awesome teacher!
I learned a lot of new things about tattooing. I can know identify different tattoo designs for different places.
history of my culture as well as the commonalities of other pacific islanders

Amazing woman, amazing instructor.
Its been a great class! Hope she can teach more courses at Windward.
An excellent proffesor I would reccomend to all my freinds
This is one of my favorite classes. Kumu Tricia is an awesome teacher who is full of knowledge in her subject area. I wish there could be other pacific island tattoo or art classes.
Thank you for your time Tricia Allen!
Mahalo tricia for everything. i really enjoyed this class and think that it is important for people our age to learn this infomation. since most of it is lost. Mahalo nui loa.

That no matter how disconnected you are from your culture and traditions, you will always be connected, you just need to find it in you.
Research principles when dealing with Polynesian History. I also have a new appreciation for Polynesian Cultures.
It has taught me a little more about my culture and the traditions of others
Learning from different cultures that I didn't otherwise know of really helped me out in understanding the differences between island groups and people Tricia is an awesome teacher and I really wish she had more classes here at windward.
To take the time and really think twice about things because sometimes things are not always what it seems.
I learned more about how tattoos relate to my culture as well as other polynesian cultures.
a richer idea of what polynesian culture looks like as a whole.
Knowing the type of designs and patterns that tattoos come from. and the history behind it all.

12. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed every aspect of the class.
Her discussions are open and unbiased. Great guest speakers. Visit to Museum. She is very caring and empathetic towards student success.
Looking at the different motifs from the Polynesian cultures and breaking it down piece by piece to get a better understanding of the tradition and purpose behind them.
I liked learning about different cultures and their tattoo/art
Seeing the tattoo designs
The visual photos and videos. And guest speaker and her storys of her travailing.
13. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Nothing. I liked all of it!
I don't like the structure of the course. When we had assignments or papers to do, there was no format to tell us what was expected of us. Ex content, page format, etc.
I didn't like that I signed up for a class on tattoo and ultimately got a class on polynesian history that included tattoo. It really was very misleading and by the time I had realized that it wasn't what I wanted it was too late to drop it and pick another class.
writing a paper but thats college for you. lol
14. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I really enjoyed this class it was very informative and Tricia gave me a better understanding about the different cultures and traditions of other Polynesians. She was very in dept about how we examined these cultures and traditions. She gave excellent examples in class and was very open to hearing the classes thoughts and ideas.
Excellent. Also relevant to current trends.
that I would definitely recommend her class
Awesome! It will constantly keep you questioning and thinking about things covered in the course.
This course was interesting and different but I would recommend that there should be more of a structure for assignments
It should be more about tattoo and less about polynesian history.
Very interesting class and worth going to.

She should be asked to teach more classes at Windward community College. Another example of the type of instructors we have here. She really cares about our success. She fits the model of why I love this school.Totally awesome teacher.
Tricia is a very knowledgable teacher. It was really great learning from someone that has "been there, done that"
Awesome teacher! Very humble, kind, and understanding. She is also very passionate and can relate well to her subject.
