Show Notes

Here's another excerpt from the live-stream event we did at the AISES National Conference on October 6th. This an interview with Ronin Ruerup and will be the last download we'll be releasing from the AISES conference for this year. Ronin's from Alaska and he was the last guest we had for that day. He's Tlingit and had a lot of amazing things to say. His interests range from Sea Otter Populations to the consultation process and oil/mineral exploration. ~ Here are some of the main ideas we talked about: Word Uses, Meanings, and Redefinitions... Indian - Indigenous - Savage "Traditional Enemies", Turtle Island/Indigenous War, and Old World War Russian Colonization of Alaska and Sea Otter Populations Alaskian Native Voices in Natural Resource Management The Value of Balance The Past is Important to Our Future, but it doesn't determine it Sovereignty and Land A Bunch of Random Live Stream Stuff!

#35 - Seasonal Rounds

Happy New Year! We're glad to be back. On today's podcast, we have a conversation about a concept called Seasonal Rounds. This idea is something expressed in one form or another by all humans and even people in the cities can't escape it. The changes we've observed in the seasons is one of the biggest influences we have upon any changes in our behavior so we thought it would be fun to explore it NDN Science Style... We dive into this topic with our own stories from Montana and disguss some of the science that surrounds this idea, and we even get into what this idea looked like for ancient Greeks. ~ Links & Resources: [The Reason for the Seasons](https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/seasons/en/) [Wim Hof](https://www.wimhofmethod.com/) [Berkes Diagram on page 1257](https://www.fws.gov/nativeamerican/pdf/tek-berkes-2000.pdf) [Toasted Sister Podcast](https://toastedsisterpodcast.com/) ~ [Like this show?

#20 - Traditional Ecological Knowledge (live recording from SUNY-ESF)

This is a recording of the live-stream we did at SUNY-ESF for a class called Indigenous Issues in the Environment. The topic of this episode is Traditional Ecological Knowledge, also known as TEK. We start off by going over definitions of TEK, then we share our personal experience with it and how this idea has shaped our views as scientists. We also ask the students to define TEK and explore this in different contexts by asking the students questions and sharing some of the principles. Enjoy! Here are some of the main points we went over: - Definitions of TEK - Worldviews and Social Systems - The Challenge of Defining Words - Convergence of knowledge systems - Healing, Restoring, and Connecting to Land - Indigenous Research Agenda ~ Links & Resources: [TEK Definition (Berkes 1992)](https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=J2CNS64AFvsC&oi=fnd&pg=PA1&dq=traditional+ecological+knowledge+berkes+1992&ots=KBjhGgyoKq&sig=nCL93lRQNGJmX0xAxjFs6SU-JlY#v=onepage&q=traditional%20ecological%20knowledge%20berkes%201992&f=false) [Worldview Diagram](https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Rediscovery-of-Traditional-Ecological-Knowledge-as-Berkes-Colding/f737e7a2ca092eeab40f1d39f56b7a934efa63c3) [Worldview Definition (Vidal 2008)](http://cogprints.org/6094/) [Native Pragmatism](https://muse.jhu.edu/book/3951) [Decolonizing Methodologies](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Wisdom Sits in Places](https://books.google.com/books/about/Wisdom_Sits_in_Places.html?id=3t-GFo8zezsC) ~ [Like this show?

#17 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World III

We're back! With another edition of Being Indigenous in the Modern World... This is a huge topic that spans many different fields of study and all sorts of scientific disciplines, so we decided that this should be an ongoing conversation. On today's show, we jump around a bit but eventually focus our conversation around graduate school, our research projects, and the lessons we've learned from going through the process of doing research with an Indigenous community. Particularly our home community on the Flathead Reservation. Although broad, this topic is pretty obvious to a lot of people. Being Indigenous in the modern world is something we're all facing on a day to day basis, but it's also something none of us is prepared for when we're children. We approach this topic in a light-hearted way and had a lot of fun putting this one together. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - The importance of historical context - An update on the challenges of graduate school - The potential benefits of entering a Ph.D. study - The value of understanding your limitations - Unique challenges Indigenous students face - What are your responsibilities? ~ Links & Resources: [11 Lies About Indigenous Science](https://www.manataka.org/page2278.html) [National Institute of Health Article on Syphilis](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956094/) Mental Health Resources for Grad Students: [One](https://www.gograd.org/resources/grad-student-mental-health/) & [Two](https://www.drlindsaybira.com/) [Be sure to leave us a review on Itunes!](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ndn-science-show/id1377936061?mt=2) ~ [Like this show?
