Research to inform praxis
Partners in Service provides logistical support for academic research that supports Indigenous sovereignty and social capital.
Research is particularly needed in the following areas:
- Development of culturally specific pedagogy for English instruction in rural Kichwa communities
- Infrastructure solutions for drinking water in water-scarce highland communities
- Ecological solutions for aquifer restoration
- Soil restoration
- Continuing colonial power relations and ways to address them in Indigenous-settler collaboration
- Agriculture and public health
- Social media and Indigenous social organization
- Local artisanal production, resource chains, and the cultural/economic implications of global trade
- Story collection and archiving
However, we welcome any collaboration that aids community development and confronts colonial hegemony.
