In this chapter, we unpack why solidarity must not only be feminist but decolonial as well, and how this problematises the modern/colonial project of the university as a site of emancipation/progress. Embodying the methodology of the meeting-place, a trans-Indigenous praxis of cultivating embodied encounters in which research is ceremony, we centre our three differently positioned stories and dark wisdoms as a means to weave something in common that does not erase the plural and our plurality. Through our yearnings and/as meeting-places as an embodied and communal process of writing ourselves, we identify three key themes: the ethical and epistemological necessity of speaking from our placed knowing-being in the world; the (im)possibility of passing in Institutions of Whiteness; and the finding of our skins-in relation and our serpent’s tongues. Together these offer gifts towards what it might mean to senti-pensar (think-feel) and embody a praxis of decolonising-feminist solidarity as kinship otherwise.
