    This week's program will be devoted entirely to Decolonizing the Mind: Healing Through Neurodecolonization and Mindfulness, a lecture delivered at Portland State University in January 2014 by Dr. Michael Yellow Bird. A citizen of the Three Affiliated Tribes, the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara, Dr. Yellow Bird grew up on the Fort Berthold reservation in White Shield, North Dakota. He has held faculty appointments in the schools of social work at the University of British Columbia, University of Kansas, Arizona State University, and Humboldt State University, and is currently a professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Director of the Tribal and Indigenous Peoples Studies Program at North Dakota State University. The author and co-author of several books, Dr. Yellow Bird's teaching, writing, and research, focus on Indigenous peoples mind body health; mindfulness and neurodecolonization research, theory, and approaches; paleo and ancestral eating; and colonization and decolonizing theory and practice. [We are grateful to Dr. Yellow Bird for giving permission to "First Voices Radio" to adapt his lecture to radio, and also offer a special expression of thanks to the video's Producer Cheryle Easter, for making the presentation available to us.
