Identity is influenced by many factors, including cultural background, abilities, religion, gender, geography and more. Growing up with deafness in a strict religious family on the island of Samoa, Loki Tiatia experienced many layered challenges that have informed his identity and inspire his work today as an ASL instructor and Deaf Advocate. As a husband to a deaf spouse and father to a deaf child, and as Highline School District’s only ASL instructor, Loki shares some of the unique struggles facing the DHH community and practical ways those who are hearing can be more tolerant and inclusive to this often marginalized group. Loki also discusses his lifelong practice of traditional Samoan dance to communicate and connect with the world around him – including audiences Deaf and hearing alike.
