Show Notes

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?

#26 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World V

On today's episode, we took a different approach to this big topic and worked with [Selina Kenmille](https://www.facebook.com/Sina.Mae), her son Leighton Wise Spirit, and Heather Atwin to have a round table discussion instead of the usual back and forth we have between just the two of us. We touch on all sorts of topics ranging from fry bread and Indin' tacos to suicide awareness and coping tools for everyday life. This was a heartfelt episode that was fun, sad, and inspired both of us to be better people. Enjoy! Here are some of the ideas we talk about: - Variations on frybread making - Struggles with alcohol and drinking - What it's like being a teenager on the rez - The benefits of doing things that are scary - Modern technology and socializing - The challenges of being and having parents - How we cope with difficult situations - The connection between food, habits, and health - Differences in social, cultural, and economic situations - Our different perspectives on responsibility - Having transgender children and siblings - The complexity and nuance of emotions - 5 tips for being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: [Fry Bread Recipe](http://archive.jsonline.com/features/recipes/176469701.html) (But be sure to ask your grandma too!)
