If only our Indigenous ancestors would see what we praise as newfound; they would say “Been there, done that”. In the current climate, the European Academia bubble is actively pushing the idea of ecological design and post-human / symbiotic thinking as a newfound ideology to be urgently implemented. This project is a rebuttal to that - saying otherwise! Through intersectional environmentalist and indigenous lenses, power is to be brought back to cultural and community experts. To do so is to learn through a relationship and co-design inspired by our different ways of doing. In this project together with the Indigenous ‘Sasak’ weaver community of Pringgasela Lombok, we unpack and learn how we may mediate these desirable collaborations.
