#20 - Traditional Ecological Knowledge (live recording from SUNY-ESF)

This is a recording of the live-stream we did at SUNY-ESF for a class called Indigenous Issues in the Environment. The topic of this episode is Traditional Ecological Knowledge, also known as TEK. We start off by going over definitions of TEK, then we share our personal experience with it and how this idea has shaped our views as scientists. We also ask the students to define TEK and explore this in different contexts by asking the students questions and sharing some of the principles. Enjoy! Here are some of the main points we went over: - Definitions of TEK - Worldviews and Social Systems - The Challenge of Defining Words - Convergence of knowledge systems - Healing, Restoring, and Connecting to Land - Indigenous Research Agenda ~ Links & Resources: [TEK Definition (Berkes 1992)](https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=J2CNS64AFvsC&oi=fnd&pg=PA1&dq=traditional+ecological+knowledge+berkes+1992&ots=KBjhGgyoKq&sig=nCL93lRQNGJmX0xAxjFs6SU-JlY#v=onepage&q=traditional%20ecological%20knowledge%20berkes%201992&f=false) [Worldview Diagram](https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Rediscovery-of-Traditional-Ecological-Knowledge-as-Berkes-Colding/f737e7a2ca092eeab40f1d39f56b7a934efa63c3) [Worldview Definition (Vidal 2008)](http://cogprints.org/6094/) [Native Pragmatism](https://muse.jhu.edu/book/3951) [Decolonizing Methodologies](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Wisdom Sits in Places](https://books.google.com/books/about/Wisdom_Sits_in_Places.html?id=3t-GFo8zezsC) ~ [Like this show?

#10 - Decolonize da Nations!

Today we talk about the Decolonization Movement and how this is something that's much larger than one word alone. We both agree that the exact word you choose isn't so important, but understanding the meaning behind the word is what matters most. So, we dive into exploring what the word decolonize means and where it comes from, and also some of the different kinds of decolonization that exist and where we might be able to apply these lessons in our own communities. We don't have all of the answers, but we're constantly curious about questions like: Why is decolonization important? Who colonized and who got colonized? What impacts has this had in the world? When did colonization happen? When did the Decolonizing Movement begin? There's a whole lot more and we realized pretty quickly that we can't cover everything in an hour-long episode, so we did our best to stay focused on a few main points. Here's some of the stuff we talked about: - IndigiFacts - Definitions of Decolonize - Land Relations... family or property? - Decolonization Methodologies - Space, Time, and Cultural Awareness ~ Links & Resources: [Decolonizing Methodologies by Linda Tuhiwai Smith](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Indigenous Research Agenda](https://www.researchgate.net/figure/The-Indigenous-Research-Agenda-Smith-1999-p-117_fig2_287646954) [Indigenous Methodologies](https://utorontopress.com/us/indigenous-methodologies-4) by Margaret Kovach [#1 Pollutant of the Earth's Oceans](https://www.cigwaste.org/) [Where was Planet Earth 230 Million Years Ago?](http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/milky-way-rotation) [Online Etymology Dictionary](https://www.etymonline.com/) [Being Indigenous: Resurgences against Contemporary Colonialism](http://www.corntassel.net/being_indigenous.pdf) [Google Scholar](https://scholar.google.com/) [The Art of War](http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html) [Cultural Clarity Article](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20519575) [Decolonizing Indigenous Archaeology](https://muse.jhu.edu/article/202308) ~ [Like this show?
