Abstract

In this chapter, we dialogically intertwine meanings that flow between the Western and the Andean cultural horizons, in urban environments marked by coloniality. Attentive to different ways of establishing community, we evoke elements from the Andean worldview from a decolonial perspective, at times overlapping with feminist political ecology (FPE). By opening to the Andean way of understanding and feeling the relationship between the social and the natural, we rehearse answers to social and environmental crises.
