What if we thought about territory in terms of all of its multiple scales and engaged protocols to include the manifestations of radical inclusion, radical relationality, and the building of creative intimacies as our (re)worlding project of love? (Recollet, 2016, p.101)
Our commitment to bodies of water as guests on Central Texas Indigenous lands includes being guided by an ethos of radical relationality that honors land, and waters as places that require reciprocity, care, accountability and interdependency; we give and are given. An ethos of radical relationality encounters places as lively beings with inherent sociality and agency within which we are inextricably connected. Watery places are sites of knowledge and creation, with which we have an obligation, alongside educators, to foster non-extractive relationships.
