Show Notes

For this episode, we took a section of the live-stream event we did at the AISES National Conference on October 6th and turned it into a podcast download. Mikaela Montoya was the first person brave enough to step up to the mic and b.s. with us for a while... and it turned out great! She had a lot of powerful messages to share and we're glad to help her share them. This conversation was a lot of fun and it was cool to meet another Native scientist hard at work in her own community.

Some of the main ideas we talked about:

- Honor the Past

- Be the Future Leadership, Adaptability, Responsibility

- Inside-Out vs Outside-In Thinking

- Mikaela's 3 Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World

- What kind of medicine are you carrying with you?

- Thinking with your head and your heart
