  • To strike a conversation with researchers who have done significant studies in their field to share best practices, challenges, and their vision for ethical decolonial research with the aim of producing a curriculum on decoloniality.
  • To highlight and explore local ways of knowing and to collaborate with folk and indigenous leaders, individuals, and groups.
