Six Soliloquies on the Making of Indigeneity

In this response piece, I engage with several aspects of López’s vertiginous excavation of lo indígena in The making of indigeneity to better understand the performative consequences of lo indígena’s curricularization. My engagement with López’s text materializes itself in six loosely connected soliloquies, each reflecting analytical instances in her work that I find insightful and helpful to interrogate what decolonizing indigenous education might look like in the present yet to come.
