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
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.
