Show Notes

This event was so epic! It's almost impossible for us to truly wrap our minds around but we do our best on today's episode. Although there have been other events of comparable size, this was potentially the largest flood event in Earth's history. The only other event that's potentially larger happened in Siberia. This "lake" carved a path through the Rocky Mountains that still frames the landscape around places like Missoula and Camas Prairie, MT.

#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?
