Abstract: This talk concerns relationships between different ways of looking at the natural world (epistemologies) and other cognitive processes such as categorization and reasoning. The focus will be on Native American (specifically Menominee Nation and Chicago-area urban Indians) relational epistemologies and biological cognition. The relevant data come from analyses of cultural artifacts, developmental studies, and adult Native, Non-Native contrasts.
