What is Relational Science?
Global (or sometimes called "Western") Science has become standardized, universal, reductivist, and without connection to body, senses, land, or spirit.
Don't get me wrong, a lot of advances and knowledges has come from this type of science, but it is not the ONLY way to do, know, be, or define science.
Relational science opens up the definition of science to include ways of knowing that are subjective, include what it is to know as a human, and is about relationships.
"In Western Science, to be scientific it has to be measurable.
But in Indigenous Science, to be scientific it has to be in relationship."
Dr. Leroy Little Bear (Kainai Nation)
