Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
On today’s episode Jessica hosts Natasha Myhal, a citizen of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians and a PhD candidate in the Department of Ethnic Studies at CU Boulder with an area of focus in Geography. Through the lens of Natasha’s academic and personal journey, Natasha and Jessica discuss community based research, traditional ecological knowledge/gikendaasowin (knowledge in Ojibwe), and ethnobotany. They further discuss the challenges of working across disciplines and how language shapes the way we understand and interact with the land. Of course, they also discuss her dissertation research which uses community based approaches to look at Little River Band of Ottawa Indians tribal natural resource management strategies that combine traditional Anishinaabe worldviews with existing management policies.
