The interview with Affrica Taylor took place during June 2018 through Skype. It was a real challenge to decide what to keep and what to leave aside of her interview since it was full of vivid stories about what it means to be human and our place in the world. Her background in cultural geography and her longstanding collaborations with Indigenous people have placed her in a unique position to do research with children.
