Show Notes

Connecting to Place… what does it mean? This topic gets deep really quick and seems to be a fundamental aspect of human nature that philosophers and scientists have been talking about for thousands of years. So we figured... hey, if they've been at it for thousands of years, we can tackle it in an hour, right? Well, we did our best and seem to keep coming back to this notion that a connection with place has the power to heal. It also has the power to reveal knowledge and wisdom in a way that our ancestors were intimately familiar with. And we feel like it's one of the many ways for how we can begin to re-indigenize ourselves, no matter where you live. Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - IndigiFact/Stats - Philosophy of Place - History of Place - Photography as a way to gain insights about places - Personal Experiences with Place ~ Links & Resources: Voting Statistics from the [Fort Belknap Daily Herald](https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fort-Belknap-Daily-Herald-889137611181345/) [Wisdom Sits in Places by Keith Basso](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/871243.Wisdom_Sits_in_Places) Basso, Keith.

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.
