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?

#24 - Fire Revolution

Today's our first official episode of Revolution Science, a series of episodes about the major revolutions that have occurred throughout human history. And it all begins with fire. In this episode, we start by going over the definitions of revolution and evolution. Then we get into describing some of the main theories behind why we think fire is potentially the first revolution for humans. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFacts about the oldest human fossils - The earliest evidence for fire use by humans - The different types of evidence - The "Cooking Hypothesis" and human evolution - Different uses of fire and its effects on plants ~ Links & Resources: [oldest *Homo Sapiens* fossils](https://www.nature.com/articles/nature22336) [oldest *Homo* fossils](http://humanorigins.si.edu/research/whats-hot-human-origins/oldest-fossil-our-genus) [Definition of revolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/revolution) [Definition of evolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/evolution) Evidence of fire use: [1](https://www.jstor.org/stable/2743299?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents), [2](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/223986842_Microstratigraphic_evidence_of_in_situ_fire_in_the_Acheulean_strata_of_Wonderwerk_Cave_Northern_Cape_province_South_Africa), & [3](http://www.beyondveg.com/nicholson-w/hb/hb-interview2c.shtml) [Control of Fire in the Paleolithic](https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/pdfplus/10.1086/692113) [Human Brain Expansion during Evolution Is Independent of Fire Control and Cooking](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299638211_Human_Brain_Expansion_during_Evolution_Is_Independent_of_Fire_Control_and_Cooking) [The discovery of fire by humans: A long and convoluted process](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/303446826_The_discovery_of_fire_by_humans_A_long_and_convoluted_process) [The nutritive value of cooked camas as consumed by Flathead Indians](https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/03670244.1972.9990289) ~ [Like this show?

#7 - Food Security or Food Sovereignty?

Today we explore the difference between food sovereignty and food security, and why these concepts are so important for Indigenous peoples. We also talk about commodities and rations, food deserts and reservations, re-indigenizing your food pallet, and a whole lot more. We start off by diving into our own experiences with food sovereignty and how we both got involved in this movement in different ways. Annie shares her story about her experiences in New York with strong Indigenous women, and Turtle kinda just rambles along and does his best to keep up. He had a mild cough when recording this episode, so his voice is a little raspy and he’s not all there at times. But this is a fun episode on an important topic that’s at the forefront of the decolonizing movement around the world. ~ Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Our experiences with food sovereignty - The many layers of food sovereignty - Commodities, community health, and food deserts - Farmers markets and getting to know your food - Connecting with place and de-colonizing your palette - Decolonizing/Reindigenizing… going back to our ways - Food Sovereignty and Security Definitions - Policy Reform and Scientific Revolution - The power of sustainability - The power of words ~ Links and Resources: [La Via Campesina](https://viacampesina.org/en/) [Declaration of Nyéléni](http://usfoodsovereigntyalliance.org/what-is-food-sovereignty/) [What is Food Sovereignty?](https://foodsecurecanada.org/who-we-are/what-food-sovereignty) Food Security Definitions ([USDA](https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/food-nutrition-assistance/food-security-in-the-us/definitions-of-food-security/)) ([Canada](https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-nutrition-surveillance/health-nutrition-surveys/canadian-community-health-survey-cchs/household-food-insecurity-canada-overview/determining-food-security-status-food-nutrition-surveillance-health-canada.html)) [The Politics of Food](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/248054867_Schanbacer_William_D_The_Politics_of_Food_The_Global_Conflict_Between_Food_Security_and_Food_Sovereignty) ['Rescaling' alternative food systems: from food security to food sovereignty](https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10460-015-9623-x) [Beyond Food Security: Understanding Access to Cultural Food for Urban Indigenous People in Winnipeg as Indigenous Food Sovereignty](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/291831351_Beyond_Food_Security_Understanding_Access_to_Cultural_Food_for_Urban_Indigenous_People_in_Winnipeg_as_Indigenous_Food_Sovereignty) [Transforming Food Systems through Food Sovereignty: an Australia Urban Context](https://openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885/12953/2/Davila%2C%20F.%20and%20Dyball%20R.%20Transforming%20Food%20Systems%202015.pdf) [Food security, food systems and food sovereignty in the 21st century: A new paradigm required to meet Sustainable Development Goals ](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/1747-0080.12264) [FOOD SECURITY AND FOOD SOVEREIGNTY – THE CASE ...
