Show Notes

Today we talk about the Decolonization Movement and how this is something that's much larger than one word alone. We both agree that the exact word you choose isn't so important, but understanding the meaning behind the word is what matters most. So, we dive into exploring what the word decolonize means and where it comes from, and also some of the different kinds of decolonization that exist and where we might be able to apply these lessons in our own communities. We don't have all of the answers, but we're constantly curious about questions like: Why is decolonization important? Who colonized and who got colonized? What impacts has this had in the world? When did colonization happen? When did the Decolonizing Movement begin? There's a whole lot more and we realized pretty quickly that we can't cover everything in an hour-long episode, so we did our best to stay focused on a few main points. Here's some of the stuff we talked about: - IndigiFacts - Definitions of Decolonize - Land Relations... family or property? - Decolonization Methodologies - Space, Time, and Cultural Awareness ~ Links & Resources: [Decolonizing Methodologies by Linda Tuhiwai Smith](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Indigenous Research Agenda](https://www.researchgate.net/figure/The-Indigenous-Research-Agenda-Smith-1999-p-117_fig2_287646954) [Indigenous Methodologies](https://utorontopress.com/us/indigenous-methodologies-4) by Margaret Kovach [#1 Pollutant of the Earth's Oceans](https://www.cigwaste.org/) [Where was Planet Earth 230 Million Years Ago?](http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/milky-way-rotation) [Online Etymology Dictionary](https://www.etymonline.com/) [Being Indigenous: Resurgences against Contemporary Colonialism](http://www.corntassel.net/being_indigenous.pdf) [Google Scholar](https://scholar.google.com/) [The Art of War](http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html) [Cultural Clarity Article](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20519575) [Decolonizing Indigenous Archaeology](https://muse.jhu.edu/article/202308) ~ [Like this show?

#27 - Interview with Neil Patterson Jr.

Today we had Neil Patterson Jr. on the show. Although Annie wasn't able to be there, it was a lot of fun and we're glad to be able to highlight Neil and his story. He's done all sorts of things and has experienced a lot in his life. He went from only wanting to hunt and fish to teaching about Indigenous issues and traditional ecological knowledge in a university setting. Neil's had quite the journey and continues to contribute to academia, to science, and to a vision for better futures for all peoples. Here are some of the ideas we talk about: - Neil's love for the outdoors and damming streams as a kid - How he found his way to college and the role of family encouragement - The differences between technologies and their effects on people - His adventures toward becoming a teacher and mentor - The challenges inherent in multiculturalism - Some of the biggest/hardest realizations that led to learning ~ Links and Resources: [National Film Board of Canada](https://www.nfb.ca/) [The Ecology and History of Onondaga Laken](https://vimeo.com/180121509) (a talk by Neil at the Skä-noñh Center) [Northville-Placid Trail](https://www.cnyhiking.com/Northville-PlacidTrail.htm) [Robert Griffing Painting](https://lordnelsons.com/gallery/frontier/griffing/48.htm) ~ [Like this show?

#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?
