BENEFITING: Pachamama Alliance

Kyle Solomon

THE STORY:

minga (meen-gah) n. : Quechua word used throughout the Andes and the Amazon to describe a communal work party, much like a barn-raising.

In a minga, community members work as equals toward the realization of a practical common goal, such as repairing the roof on a neighbor's house.

We are calling together an international minga, along with our friends at the Pachamama Alliance, the University of San Francisco, and NAE, the Achuar Nation of Ecuador.

 

The goal of our minga is to decolonize the process of education in the Amazon.

 

12 graduate students, two professors and 20 Achuar elementary school teachers will come together in a remote Amazonian village in July to design an Achuar-English bilingual curriculum for children that is based in local Indigenous life, culture, traditions and technology.

The Achuar, having mastered Spanish, now wish to move on to English, to support their efforts in ecotourism, and allow them to represent themselves and communicate more effectively with the wider world.

The resulting curriculum will be shared and publicized, raising consciousness of the potential for intercultural/multilingual education to help reform our relationship with the Earth and its inhabitants.
