This space is open to all and includes the participation of OSU faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, lecturers and staff as well as international participants, participants from other institutions, members of indigenous communities and artists. It is a space for reflecting on indigenous arts and humanities and for developing exercises of “unlearning” grounded in decolonial approaches, interdisciplinary methodologies, and indigenous meaning-making practices. Our Fall 2020 Collaborative Writing Google document with session recordings and information about K'acha Willaykuna’s autumn 2020 events is available here

Inspired by the visit of Mapuche artist Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste in autumn 2019and in preparation for future K’acha Willaykuna indigenous artist residencies, each week we exchange ideas and reflect together as a community about methods and practices informed by indigenous epistemologies. We use this space to discuss short readings and other media resources shared by members of the K’acha Willaykuna group throughout the semester and to engage artist collaborations. At the end of each hour, we produce a short newsletter with a summary of that morning’s session and links to resources for everyone in the K’acha Willaykuna project. These resources are brief and accessible, supplementing the more research-focused ongoing bibliography for the project.
