Lynn Gehl, Algonquin, resides in what is now called Ontario, Canada. Her doctoral work and book The Truth that Wampum Tells: My Debwewin on the Algonquin Land Claims Process addresses Canada’s continued denial of the Algonquin Nation’s jurisdiction to land and resources. This denial and subjugation she argues is genocide. Her second book Claiming Anishinaabe: Decolonizing the Human Spirit addresses her journey moving deeper into the sophistication of Indigenous knowledge that values truth is inclusive of both mind and heart knowledge. She argues morality takes the same pathway as heart knowledge.
