Today I'm talking to the founder of Native Women Running Verna Volker.  Verna is an ultra runner and member of the Navajo nation who created Native Women Running to share and celebrate the stories of Indigenous women runners. A mother of four and a second-grade teacher, Verna first began running over ten years ago as a way to get in shape after moving to a new city. When she started sharing her progress through social media, Verna saw an online running community that failed to look like her or the other women she knew.   Verna began amplifying the voices of other Indigenous women, and this grew into Native Women Running. Verna has kept building this platform, reaching recognition in the larger running community, and continues to push herself on the trail, recently completing her first 100k race this fall.We talk about: Stepping outside of your comfort zone Prioritizing restSurprising yourselfTo get the latest tools to help you build your own career right now, check out these FREE resources at Madam Athlete:Negotiation: Grab your worksheet to prepare yourself for your next negotiationGoal-Setting Mini Course:  Get started in the FREE Goal-Setting mini-course today!Managing Perfectionism:  Download my 3 favorite exercises to fight off perfectionismBook Club:  Sign up here to join the book clubKeep an eye out for new content or let us know what you'd like to see next by following us on social:Instagram:  @theMadamAthleteFacebook:  @MadamAthleteTwitter:  @MadamAthlete

Global Warming's "tipping points" like Fires, Floods, Permafrost Melt, and other catastrophes appear absolutely unstoppable when framed with the oft-asked "what can _I_ do about it?" We show why this is the WRONG framework to use when tackling climate issues. Then, we further go into how (MMT be damned) possibly one of the most KEY parts of solving the crisis is the taxation of the BIllionaire class. Finally, we shed light on how, while it is perfectly good that Gabby Petito got the attention she did when she was "lost", so many more Native women are lost with barely a mention in even the most local of media.

This week we have the privilege of talking with Verna Volker - a Navajo ultra runner, mom of four and the founder of Native Women Running which is a community geared towards celebrating and bringing visibility to native runners by sharing their stories. This platform was born when Verna realized that she didn't see herself in the running world. “There's some type of image that's always portrayed in running…It's the mom who's a white mom, blonde, beautiful, thin, who just ran Boston and is back to her pre-pregnancy weight holding a baby.” Seeing primarily those posts on instagram and thinking “that is just not me” made Verna create a space on the internet where native women could find belonging, encouragement and sisterhood. Running is a way for Verna to heal. She's been on her own journey from generational trauma and loss to forgiveness. She runs because many people can't and she dedicates her races to lost family members or people on her mind. She also puts on virtual runs that are a call to action, bringing awareness to travesties like Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and the recent children who have been found on residential school properties. For too long native people have felt silenced - these runs are a way to use their voice and say, (in regards to missing women) ”These women are important to us. They're mothers and wives and sisters and aunties and they need to be found or they need to get justice.” We talk about the barriers native runners face, what some race directors are doing to diversify their start lines, the sponsorships NWR provides to support runners in their community, and how women can be proactive and protect themselves while running. Verna left us with reminders that each of us can use our unique gifts for activism and to be an ally. Do what you can wherever you are! Verna is a true joy and she shared so many important things with us, we are so grateful to have had this conversation!

A deep dive into his Native American Heritage and the issues that they deal with. Rickey goes into his feelings on how everyone can pay the respect that is deserved to Native people.

In the digital age, the humble typewriter seems rather quaint. But according to a new exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland, the typewriter is a technology with a key role in the story of female emancipation. The exhibition's principal curator, Alison Taubman, talks to Chloe Tilley about how typewriters provided a key opening into the world of work, propelled women into the public sphere, and played a major role in the fight for women's suffrage. More than 1000 bodies of indigenous children have been found in unmarked graves outside of former residential schools in several parts of Canada over the last few months.

Jessica Alva Khadija Rose Britton. Hanna Harris. Anthonette Christine Cayedito. If you haven't heard of these women, it’s no surprise. They’re four of the untold number of Indigenous women and girls who have been murdered, kidnapped or gone mysteriously missing.  A significant number of victims are from communities that are subjected to the harmful presence of fossil fuel and mining companies. The extractive industry is ravaging Native nations where oil and blood have long run together. Add to this a dysfunctional police and legal hierarchy that leaves Indigenous women and their families with little support during the first crucial hours when they go missing, and little recourse to prosecute predators for their crimes. In this program, powerful Native women leaders reveal the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women, and describe how they are taking action and building growing movements, including with non-Native allies. Morning Star Gali, Ozawa Bineshi Albert, Simone Senogles, Kandi White, and Casey Camp Horinek.   These stories are shocking, harrowing and heartbreaking. But then again, when your heart breaks, the cracks are where the light shines through.

Verna is the founder of Native Women Running who’s mission is to be a community that features and encourages Native women runners on and off the reservation to gain more visibility in the running world. Verna began her running life in 2009, and although it was initially a means for weight loss, she found, what so many of us find, a journey within that drives us to expand, serve and live with deeper meaning. Through Native Women Running, Verna is shining a bright light on the intense truths of being a native woman and giving voice to the voiceless. Since its inception, Native Women Running has evolved into a community of inspiration, motivation, and visibility. Verna’s hope is for native women to find belonging within the sisterhood that she has created. We hope you enjoy the show! In this episode, we discuss: - celebrating 12 years of running - growing up in Navajo Nation - “The Long Walk” - native women running - Hoka One One and Project Carbon X2 - negative stereotypes of native women - healing trauma through running - missing and murdered indigenous women - systemic racism found in running - navigating haters We recognize our Patreon community for their support.

But as more than 237 million visitors took to national parks, and even more took to trails, lakes, and rivers closer to home, certain questions were raised once again: How much do we know about the history of the land we're recreating on and who lived there?

In the United States, land ownership is dishonorable no matter how you frame it. For example, 60% of land in the U.S. is owned privately and 30% is owned by the federal government, comparatively tribal nations own about 2.5% of their land. Meanwhile, the Gates family recently became the largest owners of American farmland, owning a total of 260,000 acres of land across 19 states, with 242,000 acres being characterized as “farmland.” In today’s episode, we are joined by guest Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy to explore what land ownership means across the United States, how to begin seeding the concept of land return in mainstream consciousness, and the grave injustices we perpetuate when we continue to draw upon Traditional Ecological Knowledge for climate mitigation and adaptation without working towards land rematration simultaneously. Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy is an Associate Professor and Department Chair of Native American Studies at Humboldt State University. Her research focuses on California Indians, Indigenous feminisms, social & environmental justice, and decolonization. Dr. Risling Baldy is Hupa, Yurok, and Karuk and an enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe in Northern California.
