About the author:
Chris Kavelin has a PhD in Law with a thesis on ‘The Protection of Indigenous Medical Knowledge: Transforming Law to Engage Indigenous Spiritual Concerns’. He is an honorary research fellow at Australia Catholic University. Chris has tracked down a number of major pharmaceutical drugs back to origins in Aboriginal communities. He works in supporting the sovereignty of networks of traditional healers around the world. His latest book is Nudges from Grandfather: Honouring Indigenous Spiritual Technologies. He discovered that the most important campaign of WWII was directly dependent on Aboriginal people and knowledge and is currently completing a book on that.
Chris’s father was a psychologist that specialised in Indigenous psychology. They lived on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming where Chris experienced his own spiritual and cultural blindness. His awareness of his own blindness and learning about the practice of humility as a means of restoration of vision is something that has informed his research methodology ever since.
