Lectures and Programs


Ken offers lectures and educational programs at conferences, universities, hospitals, churches, museums, bookstores, and for Native American/First Nations Health and Cultural organizations. Program and keynote descriptions are designed according to the needs of the community or organization and may include topics such as indigenous traditional healthcare; the relevance of “evidence-based” medicine; cross-cultural tools for disease prevention and treatment; indigenous/de-colonized diet; environmental ethics; herbal traditions; indigenous psychotherapy: counseling, dreams, and life purpose; song and story-telling; and talking circles. Sacred ceremonies are not included here, as they are not “for sale” but are rather offered according to indigenous protocols and may not be open to the public.
