Decolonial design principles resonate across artistic expressions—performative, visual, tactile, acoustic, olfactory, gustatory, terrestrial—and the range of living-creature-made and naturally-occurring compositions.
Embedded in each being, each Indigenous constellation of relations, larger system of systems, are organizing principles, rationales shaping their design and interaction.
Articulating an interwoven Indigenous conceptualization of choreography, in which Native movement is embedded in a larger set of relations, human motion within a world of motion, this decolonial dialogue seeks to restore our cosmological context.
Gathering together womanist/queer/trans Native North American, Indigenous Pacific, and Palestinian movement makers and multimedia artists, activists and community organizers, critics, and educators, this dialogue illustrates the interlinked nature of our intersectional sovereign movements, our simultaneous struggles for self-determination over our terrestrial, physical, and cultural bodies.
