Kare-ā-roto: Decolonising Emotions Symposium

Ngā Kare-a-roto: Decolonising Emotions’ explores Māori and Indigenous understandings and expressions of emotions. There are unique ways of ‘feeling’ within Indigenous worldviews that can serve to decolonise current understandings of emotions and emotional wellbeing. It is clear that emotions are culturally framed and informed through collective knowledge and practices. The symposium will engage Maori, Kwagiulth First Nation and Choctaw cultural knowledges related to emotions and wellbeing. A critical part of the wider project, that this symposium informs, is the decolonisation of colonial beliefs systems that currently dominate how emotions are defined and determined in relation to Indigenous Peoples.
