He's a fellow GIS nerd, future chief of his people, and currently working on studying coastal land loss to help those that are most at risk of the dangers of sea-level rise. Today we welcomed Devon Parfait onto the show and although Annie wasn't able to be there, we're glad to highlight his story. Here are some of the main ideas we talked about: - Devon's research on coastal land loss and it's impacts in Louisiana - How he got into GIS and his love of science - His childhood experience with finding out he would be chief one day - The Nature/Nurture dichotomy and balance in the modern world - The ups and downs of modern technology and social media - Police brutality and the complex conversations we need to have about it - Louisiana tribes and the challenges of restoring coastlines - His love of people and psychology, and his passion for film and acting - The value of seeing different perspectives and hard conversations - His 3 Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links and Resources: [Supersymmetry](https://home.cern/science/physics/supersymmetry) [News Feed Eradicator (Chrome Extension)](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/news-feed-eradicator-for/fjcldmjmjhkklehbacihaiopjklihlgg) [Accelerated Learning Techniques Workbook](https://www.scribd.com/document/356138901/Accelerated-Learning-Techniques-Workbook-pdf) [Accelerated Learning Techniques Index](http://www.nlpinfocentre.com/downloads/mar2015/Colin%20Rose%20-%20Accelerated%20Learning.pdf) [Katharine Hayhoe](http://www.katharinehayhoe.com/wp2016/) [The Coddling of the American Mind](https://www.thecoddling.com/) [12 Rules for Life](https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-life/) ~ [Like this show?
