At another level, the parents engaged talanoa to deepen their understanding of their social and cultural values, which provided them grounds upon which to question the context of education and its shaping of their lives and their children. Tongan people are continually moving in and out of Tonga, Aotearoa, Australia and the Pacific Rim countries.

In Aotearoa, Tangata Whenua engage in political dialogues and struggles for tinorangatiratanga Maori sovereignty. Talanoa between Tangata Whenua and peoples from the island nations gives them insight into the protocols and values upon which their thinking and ways of being are based.

At the ASB Festival, Tangata Whenua, Tongan, Niuean, Samoan, and Cook Islands Maori parents, teachers, and children, pakeha teachers, and other cultural groups come together to showcase their songs and dances over three days. The festival has been a feature of secondary education for Tangata Whenua and the peoples from Tonga, Niue, the Cook Islands, and Samoa since The performances take place on five stages. The festival is the one time that the students, their parents, secondary schools, and the wider community come together as equals to experience different cultural performing arts.

While each group focuses on its own performing arts there is little or no intercultural education between Tangata Whenua and the diverse Pacific groupings. Furthermore, the performing arts of the island nations are not included in the school curriculum. The festival is an ad-hoc practice in the secondary sector of education.

The festival brings together diverse cultural groups and thus provides opportunities for intercultural education. The actions by the parents are specific to the situations experienced by them and their children in the school. For instance, the parents continue to meet to talk about their relationships with the schools, share their stories and social experiences, question issues of achievement by their children, and question the streaming process that marginalizes their children to lower-band classes.
