Show Notes

Patrick Yawakie has been working on food sovereignty and voter awareness for years, and we finally got him on the show. We talked about lots of stuff including life, love, his current project called Decolonize Turtle Island, and as always, his three tips for being Indigenous in the modern world.

#11 - Bringing Worldviews Together for Biocultural Restoration (live recording from AISES National Conference)

This is a special episode where Annie, Turtle, and their fellow grad-student Kaya DeerInWater came together for a "workshop" on this idea of bringing worldviews together for [biocultural restoration](https://ndnscienceshow.podiant.co/e/365aeab21a8e76/). We talk about Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Scientific Ecological Knowledge, how these are different/similar, and some examples of successful projects we've come across in our graduate studies. Interestingly enough, we didn't really do much of a workshop... mostly due to the 50-minute timeframe we were working with. But also because we put this together on short notice and overestimated how much we could actually get done. It worked out well though! We were able to get through the content and at least engage with the audience a little bit. The audio was recorded live so bear with us on some of the strange sound levels you might encounter. This is a cool episode and we hope you enjoy! Main Ideas: - Knowledge Integration - Knowing a Sense of Place - Two Eyed Seeing - Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) - Scientific Ecological Knowledge (SEK) - Onondaga Lake in upper New York - Black Oak, Wild Rice, and Blue Camas Restorations - The Challenges with the Words We Choose (Indigenous?) ~ Links & Resources: Indigenous & Western Sciences: Bringing Worldviews Together [Workshop Website](http://twoways2know.blogspot.com) [AISES National Conference](http://conference.aises.org/) ~ [Like this show?

Correction Reflections... Again

Today’s episode is all about being wrong… we caught ourselves making mistakes on three separate episodes. Although being wrong is okay, correcting yourself when you recognize that you're wrong is important. On today's show, we correct ourselves on some mistakes we made in three episodes (#16, #21, and #22), and then we reflect about it. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Greg Gianforte DID support recognizing the Little Shell - Coffee isn't 60th most traded commodity - The Netherlands is not the top consumer of coffee - Mark Twain Quote not originally him - Workers might not make a dollar a day in Chiapas - Margarin Misunderstanding - Coffee Half-life isn't 12 hours - Hippocrates is older than Jesus - New York City doesn't have 12 million people ~ Links & Resources: How much does coffee get traded?

#22 - Ethnobotany

Ethnobotany can be looked at in different ways. On one hand, it describes the people-plant relationships that Indigenous cultures have always relied on. And on the other, it can be seen as the discipline within science that studies these relationships, plant biology, and their stories. In this episode, we dive into definitions, some history, and we even talk about aliens a little bit. We also go over why we think this is an important topic and how we view plant relationships. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Definitions of botany and ethnobotany - Differences between botany and ethnobotany - The history of ethnobotany - Our perspectives on plant relations - Seasonality and Gratitude ~ Links & Resources: [Cryptozoology](https://www.metaphysicsinstitute.org/program-info/specializations/cryptozoology) Merriam-Webster Definitions of [Botany](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/botany) and [Ethnobotany](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ethnobotany) [Ethnobotany History](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0738081X18300592?via%3Dihub) [Egyptian Ethnobotany Pregnancy Tests](https://history.nih.gov/exhibits/thinblueline/timeline.html) [Lavender and Xenoestrogens](https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/lavender-tea-tree-oils-may-cause-breast-growth-boys) [Hippocrates](https://www.iep.utm.edu/hippocra/), [Aldo Leopold](https://www.aldoleopold.org/about/aldo-leopold/), & [Native Pragmatism](http://blogs.harvard.edu/hltf/files/2011/02/Binder3.pdf) [Camas](https://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/cs_caqub2.pdf) and [Bitterroot](https://www.mtpr.org/post/field-notes-all-about-bitterroot-montanas-state-flower) [Witness to Injustice Blanket Exercise](https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=KzXdi_RDkjc) Support the show by rockin a shirt or a hoodie for the [Being Indigenous in the Modern World (#BIMW) Merchandise Campaign](http://www.bonfire.com/ndnscienceshow). ~ [Like this show?
