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?

#18 - Interview with Kaya DeerInWater

Kaya DeerInWater is a close friend of ours and we’re excited to finally have him on the show. He’s the other member of our graduate cohort and we’ve wanted to have him on the show for over a year now. Kaya’s a dedicated and loving family man, he’s a brilliant botanist in the making, and he has a lot of knowledge about ecological restoration. Some of the main things we talk about today are: - Kaya’s childhood, his connection to culture, and academic background - How he got from California to graduate school in New York - Some of the challenges he faced doing his research - Where his love for plants started and made its way into his work - The usefulness of his research for other Indigenous communities - His children and the legacy he wants to leave them - Kaya’s 3 tips for being Indigenous in the modern world ~ Links & Resources: Bob Marshall Info: [Source 1](http://www.umt.edu/this-is-montana/columns/stories/bob-marshall-wilderness.php), [Source 2](https://www.bmwf.org/), [Source 3](https://www.wilderness.net/nwps/Marshall) ~ [Like this show?

#21 - NDN Coffee Science

Today’s episode is all about coffee. AKA: the good old morning brew—the life-saving afternoon pick-me-up—and the fabled cup of Joe. But before we get carried away with all that, we get into some stats about coffee. Then we talk about some of the challenges of its production, preparation, transportation, roasting, and selling. This is a cherished drink that's faced a lot of controversy for centuries, having associations with revolutions, addiction, mold toxins, and the all-too-common "coffee jitters". At the end of the show, we talk about Indigenous farmers using coffee as a way to become more food sovereign. Here's some of what we talk about: - Coffee Stats and Facts - History and Revolutions - Mold toxins (mycotoxins) - How to avoid mold toxins - NDN Coffee Sovereignty ~ Links & Resources: Coffee Statistics: [Gallup](https://news.gallup.com/poll/184388/americans-coffee-consumption-steady-few-cut-back.aspx), [CreditDonkey](https://www.creditdonkey.com/coffee-drinking-statistics.html), [USGS](https://water.usgs.gov/edu/activity-watercontent.php), [World Atlas](https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/top-coffee-producing-countries.html), & [USDA](https://gain.fas.usda.gov/Recent%20GAIN%20Publications/Coffee%20Annual_Sao%20Paulo%20ATO_Brazil_5-15-2018.pdf) [Another Podcast Episode about Coffee](https://blog.bulletproof.com/100-coffee-titan-dan-cox-on-caffeine-coffee-and-mycotoxins-podcast/) [Coffee Documentary](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEDwRrjhnNs) Coffee History Links [1](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9781444347098.ch1), [2](http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/history.htm), [3](http://www.ncausa.org/About-Coffee/History-of-Coffee), & [4](https://nationalcoffee.blog/2015/12/15/5-attempts-to-ban-coffee-in-history/) Coffee and Revolutions [1](https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/04/24/178625554/how-coffee-influenced-the-course-of-history) & [2](https://www.stephenhicks.org/2010/01/18/coffee-and-the-enlightenment/) [Processing the bean](https://www.coffeeam.com/methods-of-coffee-processing.html/) [Moldy Movie](https://moldymovie.com/index) [Mycotoxins Map of World for Mold](https://44uc8dkwa8q3f5b66w13vilg-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/RTEmagicC_HT03-2016_Fig1.jpg) [91.7 percent of samples contaminated with mold](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14726276) [this study showed above study's mold levels to be above recommended levels](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10849253) [Mycotoxin-Induced Neurotoxicity](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3179161/) [Ochratoxin A and Mutagenesis/Oxidative Stress](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367102/) [Carcinogenic and genotoxic effects of mycotoxins](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3302714) [Coffee Bean Transport—A Global Journey](https://www.ronnoco.com/blogs/news/coffee-bean-transport-a-global-journey) [Cooperation, Fair Trade, and the Development of Organic Coffee Growing in Chiapas](https://www.mdpi.com/2071-1050/11/2/357) [Can agroecological coffee be part of a food sovereignty strategy in Puerto Rico?](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016718518303191) [Coffee and the Shock Doctrine in Puerto Rico](https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/08/04/coffee-and-shock-doctrine-puerto-rico) Coffee Recommendations: [1](https://www.winonaladuke.com/coffeeshop), [2](http://www.australianindigenouscoffee.com.au/), [3](https://us.foursigmatic.com/), & [4](http://www.kaapittiaq.ca) ~ [Like this show?

This is a live recording of Annie Sorrell and Tommy Mackey at the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) 48th Annual Conference in Lexington, Kentucky on October 17, 2019. The topic of this session was focused on the diverse interests in environmental science that have grappled with the differences between mainstream quantitative science and qualitative Indigenous science. This hands-on presentation is for education practitioners who have questions about what these differences mean for environmental education. Be sure to check out the link below to download the PowerPoint so you can follow along. Main Ideas: - importance of place - Indigenous perspectives on land - how a worldview shaped Onondaga Lake - how a worldview shaped the Mission Mountain Tribal Wilderness - moving forward with two lenses ~ Links & Resources: [NAAEE Workshop PowerPoint](https://ndnscienceshow.files.wordpress.com/2019/10/naaee-workshop.pdf) [Searching for Synergy: Integrating Traditional and Scientific Ecological Knowledge in Environmental Science Education](https://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ987714) by Robin Kimmerer [Two-Eyed Seeing into Environmental Education: Revealing its "Natural" Readiness to Indigenize](https://cjee.lakeheadu.ca/article/viewFile/1071/664) by Margaret McKeon [North American Association for Environmental Education](https://naaee.org/) ~ [Like this show?
