Show Notes

We're back! With another edition of Being Indigenous in the Modern World... This is a huge topic that spans many different fields of study and all sorts of scientific disciplines, so we decided that this should be an ongoing conversation. On today's show, we jump around a bit but eventually focus our conversation around graduate school, our research projects, and the lessons we've learned from going through the process of doing research with an Indigenous community. Particularly our home community on the Flathead Reservation. Although broad, this topic is pretty obvious to a lot of people. Being Indigenous in the modern world is something we're all facing on a day to day basis, but it's also something none of us is prepared for when we're children. We approach this topic in a light-hearted way and had a lot of fun putting this one together. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - The importance of historical context - An update on the challenges of graduate school - The potential benefits of entering a Ph.D. study - The value of understanding your limitations - Unique challenges Indigenous students face - What are your responsibilities? ~ Links & Resources: [11 Lies About Indigenous Science](https://www.manataka.org/page2278.html) [National Institute of Health Article on Syphilis](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956094/) Mental Health Resources for Grad Students: [One](https://www.gograd.org/resources/grad-student-mental-health/) & [Two](https://www.drlindsaybira.com/) [Be sure to leave us a review on Itunes!](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ndn-science-show/id1377936061?mt=2) ~ [Like this show?

#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. Enjoy! ~ [Like this show? Leave us a review here](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ndn-science-show/id1377936061?mt=2)... even one sentence helps!

#32 - Interview with Devon Parfait

He's a fellow GIS nerd, future chief of his people, and currently working on studying coastal land loss to help those that are most at risk of the dangers of sea-level rise. Today we welcomed Devon Parfait onto the show and although Annie wasn't able to be there, we're glad to highlight his story. Here are some of the main ideas we talked about: - Devon's research on coastal land loss and it's impacts in Louisiana - How he got into GIS and his love of science - His childhood experience with finding out he would be chief one day - The Nature/Nurture dichotomy and balance in the modern world - The ups and downs of modern technology and social media - Police brutality and the complex conversations we need to have about it - Louisiana tribes and the challenges of restoring coastlines - His love of people and psychology, and his passion for film and acting - The value of seeing different perspectives and hard conversations - His 3 Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links and Resources: [Supersymmetry](https://home.cern/science/physics/supersymmetry) [News Feed Eradicator (Chrome Extension)](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/news-feed-eradicator-for/fjcldmjmjhkklehbacihaiopjklihlgg) [Accelerated Learning Techniques Workbook](https://www.scribd.com/document/356138901/Accelerated-Learning-Techniques-Workbook-pdf) [Accelerated Learning Techniques Index](http://www.nlpinfocentre.com/downloads/mar2015/Colin%20Rose%20-%20Accelerated%20Learning.pdf) [Katharine Hayhoe](http://www.katharinehayhoe.com/wp2016/) [The Coddling of the American Mind](https://www.thecoddling.com/) [12 Rules for Life](https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/) ~ [Like this show?

#5 - Biocultural Restoration

Today’s episode is all about restoration… specifically, Biocultural Restoration and how this field of science brings different disciplines into a synthesized approach. This approach aims to restore and revitalize both ecosystems and the cultures that were originally responsible for them. We discuss everything from our experience with this field of study in our graduate program to definitions and paradigms that surround ecological restoration. We also go over some of the drawbacks to ecological restoration, how biocultural restoration addresses these drawbacks, and how all of this relates to bringing worldviews together and integrating knowledge systems. Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - It's important for everyone to have a seat at the table... this includes scientists, managers, and the community they're working with. - What’s missing from ecological restoration... an ongoing Cultural Context - Restoration Ecology Myths: Carbon Copy and Sysiphus Complex - Definitions of ecological, biocultural, and reciprocal restoration - The value of other worldviews and working together - Integrating different Ways of Knowing ~ Resources: [The Myths of Ecological Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/279891961_The_Myths_of_Restoration_Ecology) [Restoration Ecology: The State of an Emerging Field (article)](http://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/c04d/efa922d0ff40c938564e663b6cd3aa5c5bd7.pdf) [Ecological Restoration (textbook)](http://www.amazon.com/Ecological-Restoration-Susan-M-Galatowitsch/dp/0878936076) [Tropical Ecological and Biocultural Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Daniel_Janzen2/publication/6070586_Tropical_Ecological_and_Biocultural_Restoration/links/564d068d08ae1ef9296a775f/Tropical-Ecological-and-Biocultural-Restoration.pdf) [Restoration and Reciprocity: The Contributions of Traditional Ecological Knowledge](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/226214585_Restoration_and_Reciprocity_The_Contributions_of_Traditional_Ecological_Knowledge) [Indigenous and Western Science Workshop at SUNY-ESF](http://www.twoways2know.blogspot.com/) [American Indian Science and Engineering Society National Conference](http://www.conference.aises.org/) ~ [Like this show?
