Let’s Talk…Social Justice with Dr. Chris Kavelin
This week on Let’s Talk…Social Justice, Kevin digs into the power and importance of Indigenous medical knowledge with researcher and writer Dr. Chris Kavelin. Regular Let’s Talk listeners would have heard a special Let’s Talk…From the Archives episode a few weeks ago with Dr. Chris Kavelin speaking to the late, great Uncle Tiga Bayles.
This week, Kevin picks up on that conversation as part of his ongoing series on health justice in the colony.
Dr. Chris Kavelin has a PhD in Law, he has a deep interest in finding ways to compel colonial legal and political systems to better protect and acknowledge Indigenous knowledges; moving beyond extractive and colonial approaches to Indigenous medical knowledge and towards a full recognition of Indigenous knowledge sovereignty.
