This talk argues that recent scholarly efforts to center decoloniality and indigenous knowledges risk romanticization when universalized. The research is drawn from transdisciplinary ethnographic field research in Sarawak, East Malaysia, with Malay and Iban orangutan-handlers and orangutans between 2010-2016.
