Andrés Triana Solórzano
Andrés Triana Solórzano is currently a doctoral student in the Department of Anthropology at the Yale School of the Environment, where his research centers on the intricate relationships between Indigeneity and Marronage in the context of decolonial efforts related to food sovereignty and environmental justice across Latin America and the Caribbean. His prospective research seeks to contribute to the understanding of the discourse surrounding Marronage and emergent Caribbean Indigeneities within the complex multispecies realm of Honey Bees, apiculture, and food sovereignty in Puerto Rico. Prior to pursuing his PhD, Andrés completed his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Social Anthropology and Environmental Science & Public Policy in 2023. His undergraduate thesis was a deep dive into the revitalization of Conuco agriculture and the pursuit of food sovereignty through the perspective of Marronage and Creole Indigeneity within his maternal ancestral community of Curiepe, a Maroon community located along the central Caribbean coast of Venezuela.
