The Kogi and MUNEKAN MASHA: The epistemological basis of learning the unexplainable and teaching the incomprehensible across a chasm.

Munekan Masha is the name of a project devised and designed by the Kogi people of Colombia. The project requires conventional environmental scientists learn Kogi conservation methods. Using ethnographic fieldwork methods to determine how these vastly different ways of approaching the environment might be able to work together, anthropologists will draw out the assumptions and biases that each group carries with regards indicators of environmental health and what constitutes signs of regeneration or dis-ease.

This project explores fundamental questions about how landscape health is understood, conceived and encouraged and by drawing different ways of approaching the environment together hopes to find novel, collaborative solutions to revitalising degraded landscapes.
