Mr Reg Blow, an Aborigine from Queensland, Australia, has been professionally involved in Aboriginal affairs for over 35 years. He has worked in both non-governmental and governmental agencies in executive positions on all levels of local, state, and national government. He recently visited Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA and spoke at the four-year anniversary celebration of the David Lynch Foundation.
First Mr Blow acknowledged the traditional people of the United States, their ancestors and elders past and present. He acknowledged the indigenous peoples around the world who are the custodians of the land: 'What I am gathering,' he said, 'is that they are the custodians of Natural Law, and this is one of the missions I am going to take back.'
He said he has 'really connected' to his role in Aboriginal affairs. He noted many problems and issues in the current situation for Aboriginals that need attention and improvement. 'But I can see now that there is hope—real, real hope for growth in our community through Transcendental Meditation, and I intend to take that back when I go back to Australia.'
Mr Blow also gave a delightful performance on the didgeridoo, a traditional wind instrument used by Aboriginal tribes in Australia, explaining that 'it connects us together'.
