#31 - What a Crazy Year!

We realized that we needed to do a bit of an update about where we've been over the last year and although we meant to keep it short, we started talking politics... you know how that goes. We talked about life, love, and sadness. We share about what we've been up to and where we're going, and then we went down the political rabbit hole for about twenty minutes.

#27 - Interview with Neil Patterson Jr.

Today we had Neil Patterson Jr. on the show. Although Annie wasn't able to be there, it was a lot of fun and we're glad to be able to highlight Neil and his story. He's done all sorts of things and has experienced a lot in his life. He went from only wanting to hunt and fish to teaching about Indigenous issues and traditional ecological knowledge in a university setting. Neil's had quite the journey and continues to contribute to academia, to science, and to a vision for better futures for all peoples. Here are some of the ideas we talk about: - Neil's love for the outdoors and damming streams as a kid - How he found his way to college and the role of family encouragement - The differences between technologies and their effects on people - His adventures toward becoming a teacher and mentor - The challenges inherent in multiculturalism - Some of the biggest/hardest realizations that led to learning ~ Links and Resources: [National Film Board of Canada](https://www.nfb.ca/) [The Ecology and History of Onondaga Laken](https://vimeo.com/180121509) (a talk by Neil at the Skä-noñh Center) [Northville-Placid Trail](https://www.cnyhiking.com/Northville-PlacidTrail.htm) [Robert Griffing Painting](https://lordnelsons.com/gallery/frontier/griffing/48.htm) ~ [Like this show?

#26 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World V

On today's episode, we took a different approach to this big topic and worked with [Selina Kenmille](https://www.facebook.com/Sina.Mae), her son Leighton Wise Spirit, and Heather Atwin to have a round table discussion instead of the usual back and forth we have between just the two of us. We touch on all sorts of topics ranging from fry bread and Indin' tacos to suicide awareness and coping tools for everyday life. This was a heartfelt episode that was fun, sad, and inspired both of us to be better people. Enjoy! Here are some of the ideas we talk about: - Variations on frybread making - Struggles with alcohol and drinking - What it's like being a teenager on the rez - The benefits of doing things that are scary - Modern technology and socializing - The challenges of being and having parents - How we cope with difficult situations - The connection between food, habits, and health - Differences in social, cultural, and economic situations - Our different perspectives on responsibility - Having transgender children and siblings - The complexity and nuance of emotions - 5 tips for being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: [Fry Bread Recipe](http://archive.jsonline.com/features/recipes/176469701.html) (But be sure to ask your grandma too!)
