The International Congress of Indigenous Worlds (COIMI) is a biennial event held as part of the Permanent Seminar on Indigenous Worlds - America, at the Center for Humanities (CHAM / NOVA FCSH-UAC) from Nova University of Lisbon, Portugal, on 27-28 April 2015. With COIMI, CHAM aims to build a larger and collaborative network at national and international level for interdisciplinary discussions on the history of indigenous peoples in the Americas. The aim is therefore to broaden the dialogue between Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers on the topic in order to create new theoretical and methodological paths for research on traditional peoples from the 16th century to the present day and to promote action in favour of memory, cultural and environmental heritage, history, education and Indigenous rights at the general international level.

At IV COIMI - ABYA YALA 2023, which will take place at the Universidad del Magdalena in the city of Santa Marta, Colombia, the aim is to expand the dialogue between indigenous and non-indigenous researchers and construct other epistemological, political, decolonial and interdisciplinary pathways on the topic of Territories, Territorializations, and Ancestral Knowledge in Borders.
