Show Notes

Today’s episode is about biopiracy… but first, we share an Indigi-Fact that turned out to be a cool surprise to both of us. After that, we dive into some history, a few definitions, a case study, and how biopiracy can affect Indigenous communities. We also explore some ideas for how this issue can be addressed now/in the future, and why this is such an important topic for Indigenous peoples around the planet. This one was interesting to bring together because it’s such a big topic that ties into things like intellectual property rights and discovery doctrines from Europe… and there’s a lot more to it so we’ll probably revisit this one again sometime soon. Enjoy!

Here are some of the main ideas we talk about:

- Biopiracy definitions and history

- Intellectual property rights and patent law

- Ayahuasca patents, culture, and place

- Ideas and Potential Solutions

Correction Reflections... Again

Today’s episode is all about being wrong… we caught ourselves making mistakes on three separate episodes. Although being wrong is okay, correcting yourself when you recognize that you're wrong is important. On today's show, we correct ourselves for some mistakes we made in three episodes (#16, #21, and #22), and then we reflect on it. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Greg Gianforte DID support recognizing the Little Shell - Coffee isn't the 60th most-traded commodity - The Netherlands is not the top consumer of coffee - Mark Twain's Quote was not originally him - Workers might not make a dollar a day in Chiapas - Margarin Misunderstanding - Coffee Half-life isn't 12 hours - Hippocrates is older than Jesus - New York City doesn't have 12 million people ~ Links & Resources: How much coffee gets traded?

#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 are 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 discuss 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 Wim Hof Berkes Diagram on page 1257 Toasted Sister Podcast ~ 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 people. 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 The Ecology and History of Onondaga Laken (a talk by Neil at the Skä-noñh Center) Northville-Placid Trail Robert Griffing Painting ~ Like this show?
