“Decoloniality is at once the unveiling of the wound and the possibility of healing. It makes the wound visible, tangible; it voices the scream.”
– Walter Mignolo / Rolando Vázquez
Cultural wounds refer to the trauma inflicted in society by centuries of physical and symbolic violence. They are caused by the narratives fabricated to legitimize colonial power, which involved categorizations among races and genders, and the brutal suppression of systems of belief that differ from European canons.
