Show Notes

Connecting to Place… what does it mean? This topic gets deep really quick 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 for how we can begin to re-indigenize ourselves, no matter where you 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 about places - Personal Experiences with Place ~ Links & Resources: Voting Statistics from the [Fort Belknap Daily Herald](https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fort-Belknap-Daily-Herald-889137611181345/) [Wisdom Sits in Places by Keith Basso](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/871243.Wisdom_Sits_in_Places) Basso, Keith.

#15 - Biopiracy

Today’s episode is about biopiracy… but first, we share an Indigi-Fact that turned out to be a cool surprise to both of us. After that, we dive into some history, a few definitions, a case study, and how biopiracy can affect Indigenous communities. We also explore some ideas for how this issue can be addressed now/in the future, and why this is such an important topic for Indigenous peoples around the planet. This one was interesting to bring together because it’s such a big topic that ties into things like intellectual property rights and discovery doctrines from Europe… and there’s a lot more to it so we’ll probably revisit this one again sometime soon. Enjoy!

#24 - Fire Revolution

Today's our first official episode of Revolution Science, a series of episodes about the major revolutions that have occurred throughout human history. And it all begins with fire. In this episode, we start by going over the definitions of revolution and evolution. Then we get into describing some of the main theories behind why we think fire is potentially the first revolution for humans. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFacts about the oldest human fossils - The earliest evidence for fire use by humans - The different types of evidence - The "Cooking Hypothesis" and human evolution - Different uses of fire and its effects on plants ~ Links & Resources: [oldest *Homo Sapiens* fossils](https://www.nature.com/articles/nature22336) [oldest *Homo* fossils](http://humanorigins.si.edu/research/whats-hot-human-origins/oldest-fossil-our-genus) [Definition of revolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/revolution) [Definition of evolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/evolution) Evidence of fire use: [1](https://www.jstor.org/stable/2743299?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents), [2](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/223986842_Microstratigraphic_evidence_of_in_situ_fire_in_the_Acheulean_strata_of_Wonderwerk_Cave_Northern_Cape_province_South_Africa), & [3](http://www.beyondveg.com/nicholson-w/hb/hb-interview2c.shtml) [Control of Fire in the Paleolithic](https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/pdfplus/10.1086/692113) [Human Brain Expansion during Evolution Is Independent of Fire Control and Cooking](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299638211_Human_Brain_Expansion_during_Evolution_Is_Independent_of_Fire_Control_and_Cooking) [The discovery of fire by humans: A long and convoluted process](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/303446826_The_discovery_of_fire_by_humans_A_long_and_convoluted_process) [The nutritive value of cooked camas as consumed by Flathead Indians](https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/03670244.1972.9990289) ~ [Like this show?
