On today’s show, we have a conversation about his story. Brett has experienced some amazing things in his life and we only touch the surface in this interview. He shares about his journey with music, being diagnosed and almost dying from cancer, and the healing journey that brought him to where he is now. Brett’s an amazing guy and I’m stoked that he came on the show. He’s also a good friend and brother and he’s helped me heal in more ways than one. Some of the things we talk about are: - How Brett and I met and some of our adventures - His initial love and passion for music from a young age - Brett’s battle with cancer and trying to heal with Western medicine - How ceremony saved his life and brought his family together - The things that inspired him to go to college and become a scientist - The difference between responsibilities and relationships - The awesomeness of birds and holistic nature of change - Life isn’t just about ourselves, it’s about the bigger picture - Family has the power to bring us together, even with different worldviews - Linear vs cyclical perspectives and change through paradigm shifts - How worldview influences individual and social perceptions of science ~ Links & Resources: [Blood Struggle by Charles Wilkinson](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/892622.Blood_Struggle) ~ [Like this show?

#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?
