Show Notes

This is a recording from the Montana Environmental Educators Association 2020 Annual Conference, where we presented to a group of educators across Montana who were interested in learning about ethnobotany. We went over definitions, our perspectives, and some practical tips that we thought were important to understand. And we thought this would be a good time to share this as a podcast since the seasons are changing and a lot of people just finished having big dinners with lots of delicious foods, including plants. Enjoy!

#23 - Being Indigenous in the Modern World IV

We're back! And to get back in the groove, we decided to do another episode on the topic of Being Indigenous in the Modern World (#BIMW). This is a big topic and we bounce around to different topics a lot, but that's a part of why it's so fun to record these episodes. Enjoy! Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - IndigiFact about How Cats Land on Their Feet - Updates on why we took a month off - What makes this topic so broad/wide-reaching - Sustainable/Renewable/Clean/Green Energy - Some Ideas to Be Indigenous in the Modern World ~ Links & Resources: How do cats land on their feet?

#33 - The Biggest Flood Ever!

This event was so epic! It's almost impossible for us to truly wrap our minds around but we do our best on today's episode. Although there have been other events of comparable size, this was potentially the largest flood event in Earth's history. The only other event that's potentially larger happened in Siberia. This "lake" carved a path through the Rocky Mountains that still frames the landscape around places like Missoula and Camas Prairie, MT.

#4 - Interview with Judy Gobert

On today’s episode, Annie’s traveling so I’m hosting the show solo. And one of the main ideas that we’ve talked about in our off-air conversations is the role of women in society and how there are a lot of women in science that have played massive roles in changes throughout history. We both feel like this is an important topic and who better to start things off than our moms. This time around, I interview my mom, [Judy Gobert](https://www.facebook.com/judy.gobert). She’s a biochemist, a microbiologist, an activist, a mom, and a grandmother. We talk about what inspired her to become a scientist and some of the projects she’s done; the challenges she’s faced growing up and the role her abusive stepfather played in the path she took; and we also talk about her outlook on Indigenous women, science, and where people can look for their own inspiration moving forward. Here are some of the important messages I got from this interview: - Judy’s love for science began with her love for math - Being an Indigenous woman is hard, but full of lessons - Change within a system is messy – get your degree and then work toward change - How listening to Creator guided her as a scientist - Indigenous knowledge systems have known things that Western knowledge systems are just beginning to recognize… Indigenous Science does not need validation from Western Science - Biocolonialism and the dangers of “science out of control” - The power of women - inclusiveness is an essential human value - The importance of language ~ Resources: [#MeToo](https://metoomvmt.org/) [American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES)](http://www.aises.org/) [Indigenous People's Council on Biocolonialism](http://www.ipcb.org/) ~ [Like this show?
