In this episode, we begin exploring the idea of being Indigenous in the modern world and how our experience in graduate school taught us a lot about this concept. It’s a big topic, so we want to be clear that we’re not the experts with all the answers, but we can definitely ask the question: How can you be Indigenous in the modern world? This will be a recurring theme and since it’s such a big question, we’ll be focusing on different aspects of this topic every three episodes or about once a month. If you have any questions or you have something to add, feel free to leave a comment or review and we’ll be sure to include it in one of the episodes.
Some of the main ideas we talk about:
- Our experience with graduate school and being Indigenous in the modern world
- Some of the tools we learned: traditional ecological knowledge; worldview awareness and integration; worldview sovereignty; biophilia and the power of word use; and respect, responsibility, and reciprocity
- Our research projects
