Show Notes

On today's episode, we took a different approach to this big topic and worked with [Selina Kenmille](https://www.facebook.com/Sina.Mae), her son Leighton Wise Spirit, and Heather Atwin to have a round table discussion instead of the usual back and forth we have between just the two of us. We touch on all sorts of topics ranging from fry bread and Indin' tacos to suicide awareness and coping tools for everyday life. This was a heartfelt episode that was fun, sad, and inspired both of us to be better people. Enjoy! Here are some of the ideas we talk about: - Variations on frybread making - Struggles with alcohol and drinking - What it's like being a teenager on the rez - The benefits of doing things that are scary - Modern technology and socializing - The challenges of being and having parents - How we cope with difficult situations - The connection between food, habits, and health - Differences in social, cultural, and economic situations - Our different perspectives on responsibility - Having transgender children and siblings - The complexity and nuance of emotions - 5 tips for being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: [Fry Bread Recipe](http://archive.jsonline.com/features/recipes/176469701.html) (But be sure to ask your grandma too!)

#2 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World

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.

#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?

Bonus Episode - MEEA 2020 Annual Conference Recording

This is a recording from the Montana Environmental Educators Association 2020 Annual Conference, where we presented to a group of educators across Montana who were interested in learning about ethnobotany. We went over definitions, our perspectives, and some practical tips that we thought were important to understand. And we thought this would be a good time to share this as a podcast since the seasons are changing and a lot of people just finished having big dinners with lots of delicious foods, including plants. Enjoy! ...
