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.
