Show Notes

Connecting to Place… what does it mean? This topic gets deep really quickly and seems to be a fundamental aspect of human nature that philosophers and scientists have been talking about for thousands of years. So we figured... hey, if they've been at it for thousands of years, we can tackle it in an hour, right? Well, we did our best and seem to keep coming back to this notion that a connection with place has the power to heal. It also has the power to reveal knowledge and wisdom in a way that our ancestors were intimately familiar with. And we feel like it's one of the many ways how we can begin to re-indigenize ourselves, no matter where we live.

Some of the main ideas we talk about are:

- IndigiFact/Stats

- Philosophy of Place

- History of Place

- Photography as a way to gain insights into places

- Personal Experiences with Place
