Show Notes

We're back! And to get back in the groove, we decided to do another episode on the topic of Being Indigenous in the Modern World (#BIMW). This is a big topic and we bounce around to different topics a lot, but that's a part of why it's so fun to record these episodes. Enjoy! Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFact about How Cats Land on Their Feet - Updates on why we took a month off - What makes this topic so broad/wide-reaching - Sustainable/Renewable/Clean/Green Energy - Some Ideas to Be Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: How do cats land on their feet?

#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?

#9 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World II

Being Indigenous in the modern world is a challenge that we face every day on reservations in the United States, and it's something none of us are prepared for when we're children. This is such a huge topic that we decided to revisit this subject from time to time. On today's episode, we explore some of the challenges of being Indigenous in the modern world as we see them, some of the opportunities, and also what our three tips are for being Indigenous in the modern world. Before we talk about all that though, we share a couple of science facts of the day. This is something we'll be doing as often as we can, but also as briefly as we can because although we love science, NDN science isn't all about facts. But facts are fun so we decided to include some interesting science stuff at the beginning of each episode. Main Ideas: - Peafowls, Peahens, and Peachickies - Hibernating Bears and Superheroes - Rites of Passage and Coming of Age Ceremonies - The challenges of setting priorities, growing up, and getting shit done - Rights and Responsibilities, and Opportunities for Change - Three Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: [Peacock Terminology](http://animals.sandiegozoo.org/animals/peafowl) [Hibernation](https://onekindplanet.org/top-10/top-10-hibernators/) [Thanatology](https://www.alieward.com/ologies/2017/11/1/6-thanatology-with-cole-imperi) [The Hero's Jounrey](http://www.sfcenter.ku.edu/Workshop-stuff/Joseph-Campbell-Hero-Journey.htm) [Wisdom Sits in Places](https://unmpress.com/books/wisdom-sits-places/9780826317247) [Decolonizing Methodologies](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Seasonal Rounds/Cycles](https://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/2015/04/finding-traditions-exploring-the-seasonal-round/) ~ [Like this show?

#18 - Interview with Kaya DeerInWater

Kaya DeerInWater is a close friend of ours and we’re excited to finally have him on the show. He’s the other member of our graduate cohort and we’ve wanted to have him on the show for over a year now. Kaya’s a dedicated and loving family man, he’s a brilliant botanist in the making, and he has a lot of knowledge about ecological restoration. Some of the main things we talk about today are: - Kaya’s childhood, his connection to culture, and academic background - How he got from California to graduate school in New York - Some of the challenges he faced doing his research - Where his love for plants started and made its way into his work - The usefulness of his research for other Indigenous communities - His children and the legacy he wants to leave them - Kaya’s 3 tips for being Indigenous in the modern world ~ Links & Resources: Bob Marshall Info: [Source 1](http://www.umt.edu/this-is-montana/columns/stories/bob-marshall-wilderness.php), [Source 2](https://www.bmwf.org/), [Source 3](https://www.wilderness.net/nwps/Marshall) ~ [Like this show?
