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?

#28 - NAAEE Conference Live Recording

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?

#19 - Interview with Robin Kimmerer

On today's show, we interview Dr. Robin Kimmerer. She's our major professor in the Sowing Synergy Program, she's an amazing botanist, author of Braiding Sweetgrass, and she's also written numerous articles about traditional ecological knowledge. Robin shares all sorts of interesting stories with us. She talks about her childhood, important mentors and her journey as an Indigenous scientist. Enjoy! In this episode, Dr. Kimmerer shares things like: - One of her favorite memories and her connection to plants - The role of culture and education in her life - Shifts in her thinking and reaching out to mentors - Restoration ecology and learning from plants - Ecological, Biocultural, and Reciprocal Restoration - Science paradigms and value systems - Robin's tips for being Indigenous in the modern world ~ Links and Resources: [Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants](https://milkweed.org/book/braiding-sweetgrass) [Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses](https://www.amazon.com/Gathering-Moss-Natural-Cultural-History/dp/0870714996) ~ [Like this show?

#6 - What the Science?

On today’s show, we explore the word ‘science’… what does the word science mean? Is there one kind of science? Where did it come from? These are just a few of the questions we touch on and we can get pretty deep at times, but this is a fun episode where we share our thoughts about science, it’s meaning, and how it’s affected Indigenous communities in the past, present, and future. In an age troubled by things like fake news, climate change denial, and a general mistrust of science and government, people are more skeptical of scientists than ever. And this is totally understandable, most scientists aren’t trained to communicate with people outside of an academic setting. We are also classically introverted and often get into this line of work because we like to be in nature or in the lab working with everything but other people. This isn’t how it used to be though, and it can’t stay this way. We need to come together as a community. We need to respect each other for our differences as well as our similarities. We need a scientific revolution that honors multiple ways of knowing, the sovereignty of Indigenous peoples, and the inherent rights of Mother Earth. ~ Some of the main ideas we talk about are: - Western Science Definitions - Indigenous Science Definitions - A Brief Introduction to the History of Science - Science and Religion - Science and Research in Indigenous Communities - Paradigm Shifts and Scientific Revolutions ~ Links and Resources: [NDNs on the Airwaves](http://ndnsontheairwaves.wordpress.com) [Native Science: Natural Laws of Interdependence](http://tribalcollegejournal.org/native-science-natural-laws-interdependence/) [Evolution, Creationism, and Other Modern Myths](http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/evolution-creationism-and-other-modern-myths-vine-deloria-jr/1122749669) [Society of Catholic Scientists](http://www.catholicscientists.org/about/mission) [Lamarckianism vs Darwinism](http://necsi.edu/projects/evolution/lamarck/intro./lamarck_intro.html) [The Structure of Scientific Revolutions](http://www.theguardian.com/science/2012/aug/19/thomas-kuhn-structure-scientific-revolutions) ~ [Like this show?
