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 V COIMI - ABYA YALA 2024, the aim is to expand dialogues between indigenous and non-indigenous researchers, build alternative epistemological, historical, political, decolonial, and interdisciplinary paths regarding art, education, culture, ancestry, and perspectives for well-being. Additionally, the aim is to broaden the scope of the network established by COIMI by integrating universities from northern Brazil that have established work on indigenous issues.
