#21 - NDN Coffee Science

Today’s episode is all about coffee. AKA: the good old morning brew—the life-saving afternoon pick-me-up—and the fabled cup of Joe. But before we get carried away with all that, we get into some stats about coffee. Then we talk about some of the challenges of its production, preparation, transportation, roasting, and selling. This is a cherished drink that's faced a lot of controversy for centuries, having associations with revolutions, addiction, mold toxins, and the all-too-common "coffee jitters". At the end of the show, we talk about Indigenous farmers using coffee as a way to become more food sovereign. Here's some of what we talk about: - Coffee Stats and Facts - History and Revolutions - Mold toxins (mycotoxins) - How to avoid mold toxins - NDN Coffee Sovereignty ~ Links & Resources: Coffee Statistics: [Gallup](https://news.gallup.com/poll/184388/americans-coffee-consumption-steady-few-cut-back.aspx), [CreditDonkey](https://www.creditdonkey.com/coffee-drinking-statistics.html), [USGS](https://water.usgs.gov/edu/activity-watercontent.php), [World Atlas](https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/top-coffee-producing-countries.html), & [USDA](https://gain.fas.usda.gov/Recent%20GAIN%20Publications/Coffee%20Annual_Sao%20Paulo%20ATO_Brazil_5-15-2018.pdf) [Another Podcast Episode about Coffee](https://blog.bulletproof.com/100-coffee-titan-dan-cox-on-caffeine-coffee-and-mycotoxins-podcast/) [Coffee Documentary](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEDwRrjhnNs) Coffee History Links [1](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9781444347098.ch1), [2](http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/history.htm), [3](http://www.ncausa.org/About-Coffee/History-of-Coffee), & [4](https://nationalcoffee.blog/2015/12/15/5-attempts-to-ban-coffee-in-history/) Coffee and Revolutions [1](https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/04/24/178625554/how-coffee-influenced-the-course-of-history) & [2](https://www.stephenhicks.org/2010/01/18/coffee-and-the-enlightenment/) [Processing the bean](https://www.coffeeam.com/methods-of-coffee-processing.html/) [Moldy Movie](https://moldymovie.com/index) [Mycotoxins Map of World for Mold](https://44uc8dkwa8q3f5b66w13vilg-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/RTEmagicC_HT03-2016_Fig1.jpg) [91.7 percent of samples contaminated with mold](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14726276) [this study showed above study's mold levels to be above recommended levels](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10849253) [Mycotoxin-Induced Neurotoxicity](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3179161/) [Ochratoxin A and Mutagenesis/Oxidative Stress](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367102/) [Carcinogenic and genotoxic effects of mycotoxins](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3302714) [Coffee Bean Transport—A Global Journey](https://www.ronnoco.com/blogs/news/coffee-bean-transport-a-global-journey) [Cooperation, Fair Trade, and the Development of Organic Coffee Growing in Chiapas](https://www.mdpi.com/2071-1050/11/2/357) [Can agroecological coffee be part of a food sovereignty strategy in Puerto Rico?](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016718518303191) [Coffee and the Shock Doctrine in Puerto Rico](https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/08/04/coffee-and-shock-doctrine-puerto-rico) Coffee Recommendations: [1](https://www.winonaladuke.com/coffeeshop), [2](http://www.australianindigenouscoffee.com.au/), [3](https://us.foursigmatic.com/), & [4](http://www.kaapittiaq.ca) ~ [Like this show?

#3 - Indigenous Environmental Issues

On today’s show, we took a bit of a different approach to our conversation. Both of us chose a topic within this overarching idea of Indigenous Environmental Issues. This is an important area to explore because our connection to the natural world is inseparable. Unlike the broad topic of being Indigenous in the modern world, this episode is more specific. We discuss oil transportation along the BNSF Railroad and the implications that spills have on the people, landscape, and watershed in western Montana. We also relate the reasons for why this is so significant to Indigenous communities by looking at two documents as examples of ways current approaches are highly colonized, but also for ways we can move forward with environmental issues in general. Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway: How much oil is transported, Implications for the watershed, How this can affect all people - The Rights of Mother Earth: The Universal Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth, The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People - Government Documents at Different Levels - Grassroots Change through Personal Change - The Power of Your Vote ~ Links and Resources: [Oil and Water Don't Mix YouTube Video](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4tSdxZplCo&t=156s) [Understanding Oil Spills In Freshwater Environments](http://https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2018-01/documents/ospguide99.pdf) [Middle Fork Flathead River: Treat: Oil Transport by Rail](http://https://www.americanrivers.org/endangered-rivers/middle-fork-flathead-river-mt/) [United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People](http://http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf) [The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth](http://https://pwccc.wordpress.com/programa/) [The Law of Mother Earth: Behind Bolivia's Historic Bill](http://therightsofnature.org/bolivia-law-of-mother-earth/) ~ [Like this show?

#4 - Interview with Judy Gobert

On today’s episode, Annie’s traveling so I’m hosting the show solo. And one of the main ideas that we’ve talked about in our off-air conversations is the role of women in society and how there are a lot of women in science that have played massive roles in changes throughout history. We both feel like this is an important topic and who better to start things off than our moms. This time around, I interview my mom, [Judy Gobert](https://www.facebook.com/judy.gobert). She’s a biochemist, a microbiologist, an activist, a mom, and a grandmother. We talk about what inspired her to become a scientist and some of the projects she’s done; the challenges she’s faced growing up and the role her abusive stepfather played in the path she took; and we also talk about her outlook on Indigenous women, science, and where people can look for their own inspiration moving forward. Here are some of the important messages I got from this interview: - Judy’s love for science began with her love for math - Being an Indigenous woman is hard, but full of lessons - Change within a system is messy – get your degree and then work toward change - How listening to Creator guided her as a scientist - Indigenous knowledge systems have known things that Western knowledge systems are just beginning to recognize… Indigenous Science does not need validation from Western Science - Biocolonialism and the dangers of “science out of control” - The power of women - inclusiveness is an essential human value - The importance of language ~ Resources: [#MeToo](https://metoomvmt.org/) [American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)](http://www.aises.org/) [Indigenous People's Council on Biocolonialism](http://www.ipcb.org/) ~ [Like this show?
