En este artículo, comparto historias cotidianas de encuentros pedagógicos de jóvenes con el agua. Comparto estas historias como ilustraciones de pedagogías que acogen a los jóvenes en relaciones de cuidado con la vida más que humana.  Me centro en el potencial decolonial de estos encuentros pedagógicos en relación con lo que activan para la construcción de mundos negros, indígenas y negre/ afro-indígenas.
