Did they register for brigade congress to get their swag Diana???
Diana Varnes
10:01
Hahaha, if there's leftover swag I'd do that!

Oh, I missed a cat, 3 dogs and 2 cats. Dog #4 is probably snuggling with my husband.

Look, I found a Discourse post for this session: https://discourse.codeforamerica.org/t/indigenous-innovation-civic-tech-purple-prize-lightning-talk-reborn-unconference-brigade-congress-2020/943

question about blue energy (never heard of it) but brilliant if it works. I am guessing driven by capturing ion migration as the two waters mix?
irkydink
17:41
anyone know?
Alec Wagner

That’s true^ poluenergy.com
Timothy Eccleston

Wow - awesome - thanks, Tom for setting up the connection to Discourse and Em for pointing that out!

Were there a decent amount of LGBTQ participantes in that contest?
Jess Sand

Oh wowwwwwie wow wow, this is incredible.
Marion Ano

@Ben - love that you connect us all through the Moon!
Timothy Eccleston
22:18
Awesome - thanks for sharing that!
Dan Stormont

Wow!!! That was incredible, Ben!

Technology is more than software and electronics
Timothy Eccleston
25:33
Technology includes crop rotation, community storytelling, etc
Benjamin Trevino
26:21
YES, Thanks for that Tim! We believe powerfully in that and heard it in yesterday’s keynote — knitting needles to rocket ships
Timothy Eccleston
26:22
I like to think of technology as “knowing how”, ways of doing.
Marion Ano
27:03
@Tim - Mahalo!! Love your comment!
kelli shewmaker
27:06
what's the word you used for "learning as we're doing"?
Diana Varnes
27:39
I'm in NIT slack too! Some of my OK peeps are part of the community.
Marion Ano
28:01
@Kelli - “Ma ka hana ka ‘ike” - I think I translated it incorrectly it is through doing one learns

I'll check if a strong program in Alaska, the Alaska Native Science and Engineering program is connected to natives in tech https://www.ansep.net/
Alyx Perry1

I work with tribes and native villages- mostly Northwest and Alaska. We're getting into highly technical on projects- i.e. drones for environmental monitoring. Best practices?
Timothy Eccleston

It’s cool to take students from embodied data collection in their context all the way to analysis, implications (and systemic misuse of data).

Self renaming is available now for location, pronouns, etc. if you wish, thanks Tom. :)
Timothy Eccleston
40:47
Right, why not join indigenous activities / groups (that are open to outsiders) instead of asking them to join a brigade?
Jess Sand
42:19
+1 Tim. We’ve been looking at ways we can uplift *ther* work rather than asking them to join ours.
Jess Sand
43:16
And also working on creating space for Indigenous (and other historically underrepresented people) to come into our membership and use us as a channel or their work. If that makes sense.
Dan Stormont (he/him) - Code for Tucson
43:20
+1 to both Jess and Tim. Though, in some cases those groups don't necessarily exist for the nations in my area, for example.
Dan Stormont (he/him) - Code for Tucson
44:22
Probably a great opportunity for partnerships.
Timothy Eccleston
44:33
Yup (partnerships)
Brendan Babb
44:43
We use data from Native Land https://native-land.ca/
Heather [she/her]
46:41
Land acknowledgement question: If an event happens to take place on a native-owned venue (having trouble choosing the most appropriate terminology), does it make sense to do a land acknowledgement
Benjamin Trevino
46:56
yes!! +++ Biomimicry!!!
Diana Varnes
47:19
What are some of the different ways lack of access to internet has been handled?
Dan Stormont (he/him) - Code for Tucson
48:09
Heather, taking a cue from the members of the Tohono O'odham nation nearest to me, I would say acknowledging the ancestral lands is very appropriate.
Diana Varnes
49:06
I love this ramble
Heather [she/her]
49:33
So, it still makes sense to acknowledge the ancestral lands when their descendants are still living there, right?

Diana Varnes

Yes, Heather, that's my experience in OK
Dan Stormont (he/him) - Code for Tucson
50:50
Heather, that is very common here in Tucson. That may be different elsewhere.

Are you having difficulty reaching out to Native Hawaiian culture?
Brendan Babb
55:51
Covid has led to a lot of online meetups, so there is a chance to visit other groups more easily. Code for Anchorage is hoping to visit Code for Oakland because they meet at the same time.
Brendan Babb
56:13
So there is a chance to meet with Indigenous groups meetups more easily even if another city.

I have a intersection - my family is from Molokai

Advice for engaging with indigenous communities?

@rashuan - awesome! That is incredibly special to be connected to Molokai

@Alyx, most tribes have a community liaison, reach out to them, meet them in person in their space, and have 2 people go because things can be so complicated.
Timothy Eccleston
58:52
Thank you, Ben! :)
Diana Varnes
58:52
We love you Ben!

Alyx, if you’re able attend the 12:00 Place-based design session you will probably get a lot out of it!
