#23 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World IV

We're back! And to get back in the groove, we decided to do another episode on the topic of Being Indigenous in the Modern World (#BIMW). This is a big topic and we bounce around to different topics a lot, but that's a part of why it's so fun to record these episodes. Enjoy! Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFact about How Cats Land on Their Feet - Updates on why we took a month off - What makes this topic so broad/wide-reaching - Sustainable/Renewable/Clean/Green Energy - Some Ideas to Be Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: How do cats land on their feet?

#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?

#15 - Biopiracy

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 ~ Links & Resources: [Seven Generations of Hominins](http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-family-tree) [The Leach and the Earthworm](http://ipcb.org/publications/video/files/film_project.html) [Introduction to Biopiracy](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Biopiracy Definitions: [One](http://moderncms.ecosystemmarketplace.com/repository/moderncms_documents/I.3.pdf) & [Two](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Intellectual Property Definitions: [One](https://www.wipo.int/edocs/pubdocs/en/intproperty/450/wipo_pub_450.pdf) & [Two](https://stats.oecd.org/glossary/detail.asp?ID=3236) [Ayahuasca Article](https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/09/12/the-ayahuasca-boom-in-the-u-s) [Patents and Traditional Knowledge of the Uses of Plants: Is a Communal Patent Regime Part of the Solution to the Scourge of Bio Piracy](https://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1232&context=ijgls) [Bioneers Radio Audio Series](https://bioneers.org/) ~ [Like this show?
