Show Notes

Happy New Year! We're glad to be back. On today's podcast, we have a conversation about a concept called Seasonal Rounds. This idea is something expressed in one form or another by all humans and even people in the cities can't escape it. The changes we've observed in the seasons is one of the biggest influences we have upon any changes in our behavior so we thought it would be fun to explore it NDN Science Style... We dive into this topic with our own stories from Montana and disguss some of the science that surrounds this idea, and we even get into what this idea looked like for ancient Greeks. ~ Links & Resources: [The Reason for the Seasons](https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/seasons/en/) [Wim Hof](https://www.wimhofmethod.com/) [Berkes Diagram on page 1257](https://www.fws.gov/nativeamerican/pdf/tek-berkes-2000.pdf) [Toasted Sister Podcast](https://toastedsisterpodcast.com/) ~ [Like this show?

#7 - Food Security or Food Sovereignty?

Today we explore the difference between food sovereignty and food security, and why these concepts are so important for Indigenous peoples. We also talk about commodities and rations, food deserts and reservations, re-indigenizing your food pallet, and a whole lot more. We start off by diving into our own experiences with food sovereignty and how we both got involved in this movement in different ways. Annie shares her story about her experiences in New York with strong Indigenous women, and Turtle kinda just rambles along and does his best to keep up. He had a mild cough when recording this episode, so his voice is a little raspy and he’s not all there at times. But this is a fun episode on an important topic that’s at the forefront of the decolonizing movement around the world. ~ Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Our experiences with food sovereignty - The many layers of food sovereignty - Commodities, community health, and food deserts - Farmers markets and getting to know your food - Connecting with place and de-colonizing your palette - Decolonizing/Reindigenizing… going back to our ways - Food Sovereignty and Security Definitions - Policy Reform and Scientific Revolution - The power of sustainability - The power of words ~ Links and Resources: [La Via Campesina](https://viacampesina.org/en/) [Declaration of Nyéléni](http://usfoodsovereigntyalliance.org/what-is-food-sovereignty/) [What is Food Sovereignty?](https://foodsecurecanada.org/who-we-are/what-food-sovereignty) Food Security Definitions ([USDA](https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/food-nutrition-assistance/food-security-in-the-us/definitions-of-food-security/)) ([Canada](https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-nutrition-surveillance/health-nutrition-surveys/canadian-community-health-survey-cchs/household-food-insecurity-canada-overview/determining-food-security-status-food-nutrition-surveillance-health-canada.html)) [The Politics of Food](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/248054867_Schanbacer_William_D_The_Politics_of_Food_The_Global_Conflict_Between_Food_Security_and_Food_Sovereignty) ['Rescaling' alternative food systems: from food security to food sovereignty](https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10460-015-9623-x) [Beyond Food Security: Understanding Access to Cultural Food for Urban Indigenous People in Winnipeg as Indigenous Food Sovereignty](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/291831351_Beyond_Food_Security_Understanding_Access_to_Cultural_Food_for_Urban_Indigenous_People_in_Winnipeg_as_Indigenous_Food_Sovereignty) [Transforming Food Systems through Food Sovereignty: an Australia Urban Context](https://openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885/12953/2/Davila%2C%20F.%20and%20Dyball%20R.%20Transforming%20Food%20Systems%202015.pdf) [Food security, food systems and food sovereignty in the 21st century: A new paradigm required to meet Sustainable Development Goals ](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/1747-0080.12264) [FOOD SECURITY AND FOOD SOVEREIGNTY – THE CASE ...

#20 - Traditional Ecological Knowledge (live recording from SUNY-ESF)

This is a recording of the live-stream we did at SUNY-ESF for a class called Indigenous Issues in the Environment. The topic of this episode is Traditional Ecological Knowledge, also known as TEK. We start off by going over definitions of TEK, then we share our personal experience with it and how this idea has shaped our views as scientists. We also ask the students to define TEK and explore this in different contexts by asking the students questions and sharing some of the principles. Enjoy! Here are some of the main points we went over: - Definitions of TEK - Worldviews and Social Systems - The Challenge of Defining Words - Convergence of knowledge systems - Healing, Restoring, and Connecting to Land - Indigenous Research Agenda ~ Links & Resources: [TEK Definition (Berkes 1992)](https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=J2CNS64AFvsC&oi=fnd&pg=PA1&dq=traditional+ecological+knowledge+berkes+1992&ots=KBjhGgyoKq&sig=nCL93lRQNGJmX0xAxjFs6SU-JlY#v=onepage&q=traditional%20ecological%20knowledge%20berkes%201992&f=false) [Worldview Diagram](https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Rediscovery-of-Traditional-Ecological-Knowledge-as-Berkes-Colding/f737e7a2ca092eeab40f1d39f56b7a934efa63c3) [Worldview Definition (Vidal 2008)](http://cogprints.org/6094/) [Native Pragmatism](https://muse.jhu.edu/book/3951) [Decolonizing Methodologies](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Wisdom Sits in Places](https://books.google.com/books/about/Wisdom_Sits_in_Places.html?id=3t-GFo8zezsC) ~ [Like this show?

#5 - Biocultural Restoration

Today’s episode is all about restoration… specifically, Biocultural Restoration and how this field of science brings different disciplines into a synthesized approach. This approach aims to restore and revitalize both ecosystems and the cultures that were originally responsible for them. We discuss everything from our experience with this field of study in our graduate program to definitions and paradigms that surround ecological restoration. We also go over some of the drawbacks to ecological restoration, how biocultural restoration addresses these drawbacks, and how all of this relates to bringing worldviews together and integrating knowledge systems. Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - It's important for everyone to have a seat at the table... this includes scientists, managers, and the community they're working with. - What’s missing from ecological restoration... an ongoing Cultural Context - Restoration Ecology Myths: Carbon Copy and Sysiphus Complex - Definitions of ecological, biocultural, and reciprocal restoration - The value of other worldviews and working together - Integrating different Ways of Knowing ~ Resources: [The Myths of Ecological Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/279891961_The_Myths_of_Restoration_Ecology) [Restoration Ecology: The State of an Emerging Field (article)](http://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/c04d/efa922d0ff40c938564e663b6cd3aa5c5bd7.pdf) [Ecological Restoration (textbook)](http://www.amazon.com/Ecological-Restoration-Susan-M-Galatowitsch/dp/0878936076) [Tropical Ecological and Biocultural Restoration (article)](http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Daniel_Janzen2/publication/6070586_Tropical_Ecological_and_Biocultural_Restoration/links/564d068d08ae1ef9296a775f/Tropical-Ecological-and-Biocultural-Restoration.pdf) [Restoration and Reciprocity: The Contributions of Traditional Ecological Knowledge](http://www.researchgate.net/publication/226214585_Restoration_and_Reciprocity_The_Contributions_of_Traditional_Ecological_Knowledge) [Indigenous and Western Science Workshop at SUNY-ESF](http://www.twoways2know.blogspot.com/) [American Indian Science and Engineering Society National Conference](http://www.conference.aises.org/) ~ [Like this show?
