Noah Romero is a PhD Candidate at Te Puna Wānanga, the School of Māori and Indigenous Education at the University of Auckland and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Noah’s research uses Indigenous Philippine methodologies to examine how historically minoritized people redefine learning and identity within subcultural contexts. Noah’s research appears in journals like Educational Researcher, the Journal of Unschooling and Alternative Education, Educational Philosophy and Theory, and Cultural and Pedagogical Inquiry. His book, Decolonial Underground Pedagogy, will be released next year.
Through community-embedded projects with Indigenous, immigrant, and queer punk scenes, skate collectives, and unschooling families, Noah’s work celebrates the agency of minoritized peoples and shows how decolonization emerges out of our commitments to autonomy, responsibility, and relationality.
