The study is meant to explore how the conceptual frameworks which govern the practises (as well as the actual practises themselves) of abathandazi (faith healers in the Southern African healing context) can lend themselves to providing insight for the configuration of a counter colonial African religion. The project will make use of immersion and other decolonial research methodologies to achieve its intended purpose.
