Show Notes

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!)

#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! Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Biopiracy definitions and history - Intellectual property rights and patent law - Ayahuasca patents, culture, and place - Ideas and Potential Solutions ~ Links & Resources: [Seven Generations of Hominins](http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-family-tree) [The Leach and the Earthworm](http://ipcb.org/publications/video/files/film_project.html) [Introduction to Biopiracy](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Biopiracy Definitions: [One](http://moderncms.ecosystemmarketplace.com/repository/moderncms_documents/I.3.pdf) & [Two](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Intellectual Property Definitions: [One](https://www.wipo.int/edocs/pubdocs/en/intproperty/450/wipo_pub_450.pdf) & [Two](https://stats.oecd.org/glossary/detail.asp?ID=3236) [Ayahuasca Article](https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/09/12/the-ayahuasca-boom-in-the-u-s) [Patents and Traditional Knowledge of the Uses of Plants: Is a Communal Patent Regime Part of the Solution to the Scourge of Bio Piracy](https://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1232&context=ijgls) [Bioneers Radio Audio Series](https://bioneers.org/) ~ [Like this show?

Correction Reflections... Again

Today’s episode is all about being wrong… we caught ourselves making mistakes on three separate episodes. Although being wrong is okay, correcting yourself when you recognize that you're wrong is important. On today's show, we correct ourselves on some mistakes we made in three episodes (#16, #21, and #22), and then we reflect about it. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Greg Gianforte DID support recognizing the Little Shell - Coffee isn't 60th most traded commodity - The Netherlands is not the top consumer of coffee - Mark Twain Quote not originally him - Workers might not make a dollar a day in Chiapas - Margarin Misunderstanding - Coffee Half-life isn't 12 hours - Hippocrates is older than Jesus - New York City doesn't have 12 million people ~ Links & Resources: How much does coffee get traded?

#11 - Bringing Worldviews Together for Biocultural Restoration (live recording from AISES National Conference)

This is a special episode where Annie, Turtle, and their fellow grad-student Kaya DeerInWater came together for a "workshop" on this idea of bringing worldviews together for [biocultural restoration](https://ndnscienceshow.podiant.co/e/365aeab21a8e76/). We talk about Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Scientific Ecological Knowledge, how these are different/similar, and some examples of successful projects we've come across in our graduate studies. Interestingly enough, we didn't really do much of a workshop... mostly due to the 50-minute timeframe we were working with. But also because we put this together on short notice and overestimated how much we could actually get done. It worked out well though! We were able to get through the content and at least engage with the audience a little bit. The audio was recorded live so bear with us on some of the strange sound levels you might encounter. This is a cool episode and we hope you enjoy! Main Ideas: - Knowledge Integration - Knowing a Sense of Place - Two Eyed Seeing - Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) - Scientific Ecological Knowledge (SEK) - Onondaga Lake in upper New York - Black Oak, Wild Rice, and Blue Camas Restorations - The Challenges with the Words We Choose (Indigenous?) ~ Links & Resources: Indigenous & Western Sciences: Bringing Worldviews Together [Workshop Website](http://twoways2know.blogspot.com) [AISES National Conference](http://conference.aises.org/) ~ [Like this show?
