International Meeting for Intercultural Collaborative Research in Atalaya, Peru: Universidad Católica Sedes Sapientiae-NOPOKI, Atalaya, July 13-17, 2017

The workshop brought together anthropologists, indigenous collaborators, and indigenous university students and professors for four and a half days (13-17th July) on the campus of the indigenous branch of Universidad Católica Sedes Sapientiae (NOPOKI) located in Ucayali Region, Peruvian Amazonia. The four main themes we discussed were: (1) the significance of previous ethnographic encounters from the perspective of anthropologists and their indigenous interlocutors; (2) the impacts of anthropological research and engagement on contemporary indigenous lives; (3) ongoing research by NOPOKI students in their own communities; and (4) the development of topics and methodologies for future collaborative research projects between participants.

 

The event was built around both scholarly and indigenous forms of communal assembly and discussion, in a setting designed for reflection and symmetrical engagement with the objective of setting a collaborative research agenda with wider comparative value. Whilst we originally sought to create dialogue between anthropological interests on the ontological turn and collaborative research, our method was purposefully adaptable to include any salient topics of interest for local participants. Thus, we included representatives from the Peruvian Ministries of Culture and Education as participants to set a more direct pathway to impact on decision-makers in relation to indigenous education and languages.
