What? Part 1 provides framing for Western-trained professionals engaging Indigenous systems of medicine. You’ve heard about “Indigenous reciprocity,” “benefit-sharing” and “benefit honoring” in the context of psychedelics and you know it’s important with respect to your own work and advising clients. You’ve heard these concepts are more than philanthropy. So what are they? What ethical frameworks and structural protections can Western lawyers, practitioners, and companies working with psychedelic medicine employ with respect to Indigenous Peoples, and the plants, land, and knowledge they steward? What are Indigenous communities thinking about with respect to the psychedelic “renaissance” and what are respectful ways Western psychedelic stakeholders may move forward? How can different ways of knowing and seeing the world, relationships, and plants co-exist meaningfully, and in a way that allows for the different ways to co-exist equally? What do existing laws require? What might emerging law require of the psychedelic medicine industry in order to build an ethical framework that includes all stakeholders?
