Show Notes

For this episode, we took a section of the live-stream event we did at the AISES National Conference on October 6th and turned it into a podcast download. Mikaela Montoya was the first person brave enough to step up to the mic and b.s. with us for a while... and it turned out great! She had a lot of powerful messages to share and we're glad to help her share them. This conversation was a lot of fun and it was cool to meet another Native scientist hard at work in her own community. ~ Some of the main ideas we talked about: Honor the Past - Be the Future Leadership, Adaptability, Responsibility Inside-Out vs Outside-In Thinking Mikaela's 3 Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World What kind of medicine are you carrying with you?

#8 - Interview with Brett Stevenson

On today’s show, we have a conversation about his story. Brett has experienced some amazing things in his life and we only touch the surface in this interview. He shares about his journey with music, being diagnosed and almost dying from cancer, and the healing journey that brought him to where he is now. Brett’s an amazing guy and I’m stoked that he came on the show. He’s also a good friend and brother and he’s helped me heal in more ways than one. Some of the things we talk about are: - How Brett and I met and some of our adventures - His initial love and passion for music from a young age - Brett’s battle with cancer and trying to heal with Western medicine - How ceremony saved his life and brought his family together - The things that inspired him to go to college and become a scientist - The difference between responsibilities and relationships - The awesomeness of birds and holistic nature of change - Life isn’t just about ourselves, it’s about the bigger picture - Family has the power to bring us together, even with different worldviews - Linear vs cyclical perspectives and change through paradigm shifts - How worldview influences individual and social perceptions of science ~ Links & Resources: [Blood Struggle by Charles Wilkinson](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/892622.Blood_Struggle) ~ [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?
