Pluriversality is the future

5 stars

This is essential reading for anybody who is doing research-creation or co-creation and is seriously interested in decolonizing your practice and care about the environment! This is becoming a Bible for grad school for me. Just worth forewarning that it doesn't provide many answers so much as to make one think more about relationality and how we could transform how we organize our communities, how we are apart of not just one community but many, and thinking on the complexity of that and how we could learn to manage interacting with other communities who are different than us while respecting everyone's autonomy. Pluriversality requires the destruction of capitalist systems and leadership from Indigenous communities in the Global South.
