This text asks us to ask who is participating and engaging, including those who may not be here anymore but still their ghosts haunt and ask us to negate dispossessions and dehumanizations. It suggests that we take on collective responsibility for transforming the "shadow of a life into an undiminished life whose shadows touch softly in the spirit of a peaceful reconciliation" (208). There needs to be meaning and depth that unites collaborators, embedded in a purpose that strives to acknowledge subjugated knowledge. It also encourages that we acknolwedge the complexities of personhood within ourselves, the people we collaborate with, and the people we write about.
