Abstract
The western scientific approach commonly entails a stripping away of what is considered extraneous and the isolation of what is considered effective. Indigenous science, on the other hand, would begin with the culturally specific, ecologically and historically grounded indigenous understanding of the "good mind," a balanced way of living in community on a particular land.
