Juma Pariri is a postdoctoral researcher working with the SSHRC-funded Partnership, Hemispheric Encounters. Juma seeks to listen and learn from plant secrets. They move in the friction between the arts of the body, undisciplined pedagogy, and the Indigenous struggle for environmental justice. They are part of the social movements Retomada Kariri and the Indigenous Cariri of Poço Dantas-Umari Association. Among others, they activate the platformAGITPORN! – POR NO a la desigualdad, for social decolonization!, to learn from indigenous ancestors about anti-monocultural sexualities, cuisines and crops, and the audiovisual springboard United against colonization: many eyes, only one heart for collective creation of other symbolic forms of self-representation of the people from first nations of Abya Yala. Their current postdoctoral project is called Indigenous perforMAGICAL ACTivations against the farce of colonial representation.
