Show Notes

Being Indigenous in the modern world is a challenge that we face every day on reservations in the United States, and it's something none of us are prepared for when we're children. This is such a huge topic that we decided to revisit this subject from time to time. On today's episode, we explore some of the challenges of being Indigenous in the modern world as we see them, some of the opportunities, and also what our three tips are for being Indigenous in the modern world. Before we talk about all that though, we share a couple of science facts of the day. This is something we'll be doing as often as we can, but also as briefly as we can because although we love science, NDN science isn't all about facts. But facts are fun so we decided to include some interesting science stuff at the beginning of each episode. Main Ideas: - Peafowls, Peahens, and Peachickies - Hibernating Bears and Superheroes - Rites of Passage and Coming of Age Ceremonies - The challenges of setting priorities, growing up, and getting shit done - Rights and Responsibilities, and Opportunities for Change - Three Tips for Being Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: [Peacock Terminology](http://animals.sandiegozoo.org/animals/peafowl) [Hibernation](https://onekindplanet.org/top-10/top-10-hibernators/) [Thanatology](https://www.alieward.com/ologies/2017/11/1/6-thanatology-with-cole-imperi) [The Hero's Jounrey](http://www.sfcenter.ku.edu/Workshop-stuff/Joseph-Campbell-Hero-Journey.htm) [Wisdom Sits in Places](https://unmpress.com/books/wisdom-sits-places/9780826317247) [Decolonizing Methodologies](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Seasonal Rounds/Cycles](https://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/2015/04/finding-traditions-exploring-the-seasonal-round/) ~ [Like this show?
