Description

The historiography of the academic study of and approach to Indigenous religions has deep imprints in European colonialism and the formation of western modernity and coloniality. This approach, way of knowing and methodology contributes to the (mis)understanding of indigenous religions, in a way that calls for the decolonizing and re-institutionalizing of Indigenous religions as an important academic and cultural field of study
