Show Notes

On this episode, we begin exploring this idea of being Indigenous in the modern world and how our experience in graduate school taught us a lot about this concept. It’s a big topic, so we want to be clear that we’re not the experts with all the answers, but we can definitely ask the question: How can you be Indigenous in the modern world? This will be a recurring theme and since it’s such a big question, we’ll be focusing on different aspects of this topic every three episodes or about once a month. If you have any questions or you have something to add, feel free to leave a comment or review and we’ll be sure to include it in one of the episodes. ~ Some of the main ideas we talk about: - Our experience with graduate school and being Indigenous in the modern world - Some of the tools we learned: traditional ecological knowledge; worldview awareness and integration; worldview sovereignty; biophilia and the power of word use; and respect, responsibility, and reciprocity - Our research projects ~ Links and Resources: Biophilia Article – Gullone, Eleanora. 2000.

#31 - What a Crazy Year!

We realized that we needed to do a bit of an update about where we've been over the last year and although we meant to keep it short, we started talking politics... you know how that goes. We talked about life, love, and sadness. We share about what we've been up to and where we're going, and then we went down the political rabbit hole for about twenty minutes. Enjoy! ~ [Like this show? Leave us a review here](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ndn-science-show/id1377936061?mt=2)... even one sentence helps!

#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?
