Decolonizing among Filipin@ migrant-settlers

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


This chapter explores the recent practice of decolonizing among Filipin@s living outside of the Philippines. It explains the premise for this practice as addressing colonial mentality and internalized oppression. The Centre for Babaylan Studies (CfBS) based in California, USA, has been engaging in decolonization with Filipin@s for a number of decades. The chapter is based on the author’s experiences of leading an online decolonizing group from Australia in connection with the CfBS. As an ecclesiologist, the author ultimately asks how churches themselves can consider thinking about and taking up decolonial practices to address colonial mentality and internalized oppression among Filipin@s.
