Show Notes

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?

#24 - Fire Revolution

Today's our first official episode of Revolution Science, a series of episodes about the major revolutions that have occurred throughout human history. And it all begins with fire. In this episode, we start by going over the definitions of revolution and evolution. Then we get into describing some of the main theories behind why we think fire is potentially the first revolution for humans. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFacts about the oldest human fossils - The earliest evidence for fire use by humans - The different types of evidence - The "Cooking Hypothesis" and human evolution - Different uses of fire and its effects on plants ~ Links & Resources: [oldest *Homo Sapiens* fossils](https://www.nature.com/articles/nature22336) [oldest *Homo* fossils](http://humanorigins.si.edu/research/whats-hot-human-origins/oldest-fossil-our-genus) [Definition of revolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/revolution) [Definition of evolution](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/evolution) Evidence of fire use: [1](https://www.jstor.org/stable/2743299?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents), [2](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/223986842_Microstratigraphic_evidence_of_in_situ_fire_in_the_Acheulean_strata_of_Wonderwerk_Cave_Northern_Cape_province_South_Africa), & [3](http://www.beyondveg.com/nicholson-w/hb/hb-interview2c.shtml) [Control of Fire in the Paleolithic](https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/pdfplus/10.1086/692113) [Human Brain Expansion during Evolution Is Independent of Fire Control and Cooking](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299638211_Human_Brain_Expansion_during_Evolution_Is_Independent_of_Fire_Control_and_Cooking) [The discovery of fire by humans: A long and convoluted process](https://www.researchgate.net/publication/303446826_The_discovery_of_fire_by_humans_A_long_and_convoluted_process) [The nutritive value of cooked camas as consumed by Flathead Indians](https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/03670244.1972.9990289) ~ [Like this show?

#17 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World III

We're back! With another edition of Being Indigenous in the Modern World... This is a huge topic that spans many different fields of study and all sorts of scientific disciplines, so we decided that this should be an ongoing conversation. On today's show, we jump around a bit but eventually focus our conversation around graduate school, our research projects, and the lessons we've learned from going through the process of doing research with an Indigenous community. Particularly our home community on the Flathead Reservation. Although broad, this topic is pretty obvious to a lot of people. Being Indigenous in the modern world is something we're all facing on a day to day basis, but it's also something none of us is prepared for when we're children. We approach this topic in a light-hearted way and had a lot of fun putting this one together. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - The importance of historical context - An update on the challenges of graduate school - The potential benefits of entering a Ph.D. study - The value of understanding your limitations - Unique challenges Indigenous students face - What are your responsibilities? ~ Links & Resources: [11 Lies About Indigenous Science](https://www.manataka.org/page2278.html) [National Institute of Health Article on Syphilis](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956094/) Mental Health Resources for Grad Students: [One](https://www.gograd.org/resources/grad-student-mental-health/) & [Two](https://www.drlindsaybira.com/) [Be sure to leave us a review on Itunes!](https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ndn-science-show/id1377936061?mt=2) ~ [Like this show?
