This paper intends to explain the development of cultural relations, considering it cannot be understood from a social darwinism approach. Interculturality is shown to be a stage in such cultural development, and to be ephemeral and seldom actualized from a historical perspective, as it becomes a passage to transculturality. Also, we intend to prove interculturality, as a discourse, has been used by dominant groups as a means to assimilate minoritized local cultures. As a conclusion, as long as relations of domination persist, interculturality is unfeasible.

Keywords: Interculturality, decoloniality, pluridiversity, assimilation.
