Anna Whiting-Sorrell was the first woman teacher's assistant for the Political Science Department at the University of Montana, she has a master's degree in Public Administration, and she's the first political scientist we've had on the show. She's served her community as the director of Montana's Department of Public Health and Human Services... and she's also Annie's mom. In this episode of the NDN Science Show, Anna and Annie have a conversation about how we as Indigenous people need to heal our historic traumas and make sure we have a seat at the table were natives can defend natives. Anna believes deeply that Indigenous people need to tell their own stories. Enjoy!

#25 - Hidden Words and Multiple Meanings

On today's episode, we talk about those words that have some sting to them. You know those words... the ones that get us cringing or offended when someone mentions them. Well, we talk about a few of the ones we've explored or experienced over the years. We also talk about how we respond to these words and how their meanings can differ. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Indigifact about the Declaration of Independence - Controversial words and their definitions - How we react and respond to these words ~ Links & Resources: [Declaration of Independence](https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript) [Online Dictionary](https://www.merriam-webster.com/) [Online Etymology Dictionary](https://www.etymonline.com/) ~ [Like this show?

#5 - Biocultural Restoration

Today’s episode is all about restoration… specifically, Biocultural Restoration and how this field of science brings different disciplines into a synthesized approach. This approach aims to restore and revitalize both ecosystems and the cultures that were originally responsible for them. We discuss everything from our experience with this field of study in our graduate program to definitions and paradigms that surround ecological restoration. We also go over some of the drawbacks to ecological restoration, how biocultural restoration addresses these drawbacks, and how all of this relates to bringing worldviews together and integrating knowledge systems. Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - It's important for everyone to have a seat at the table... this includes scientists, managers, and the community they're working with. - What’s missing from ecological restoration... an ongoing Cultural Context - Restoration Ecology Myths: Carbon Copy and Sysiphus Complex - Definitions of ecological, biocultural, and reciprocal restoration - The value of other worldviews and working together - Integrating different Ways of Knowing ~ Resources: [The Myths of Ecological Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/279891961_The_Myths_of_Restoration_Ecology) [Restoration Ecology: The State of an Emerging Field (article)](http://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/c04d/efa922d0ff40c938564e663b6cd3aa5c5bd7.pdf) [Ecological Restoration (textbook)](http://www.amazon.com/Ecological-Restoration-Susan-M-Galatowitsch/dp/0878936076) [Tropical Ecological and Biocultural Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Daniel_Janzen2/publication/6070586_Tropical_Ecological_and_Biocultural_Restoration/links/564d068d08ae1ef9296a775f/Tropical-Ecological-and-Biocultural-Restoration.pdf) [Restoration and Reciprocity: The Contributions of Traditional Ecological Knowledge](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/226214585_Restoration_and_Reciprocity_The_Contributions_of_Traditional_Ecological_Knowledge) [Indigenous and Western Science Workshop at SUNY-ESF](http://www.twoways2know.blogspot.com/) [American Indian Science and Engineering Society National Conference](http://www.conference.aises.org/) ~ [Like this show?
