Worldwide Indigenous Science Network

Mission of the organisation

The Worldwide Indigenous Science Network revitalizes and explores the growth and exchange of traditional wisdom of Earth-honoring peoples to transform consciousness and potentiate a world vibrant with renewal. Founded in 1989, the Worldwide Indigenous Science Network (WISN), 501(c)(3), is an educational organization that works locally, nationally and internationally to create an interface between western and indigenous cultures. We conduct research, host international conferences and cultural exchanges, and provide advocacy with international partners for endangered indigenous practitioners and traditional wisdom. We coordinate a global network of indigenous Elders and, with academic partners, offer the world's only advanced degree programs in Indigenous Mind. Specifically, WISN strives to: - Revitalize and renew indigenous knowledge systems by supporting surviving practitioners of Indigenous- Mind and convening scholarly and cultural gatherings. - Provide opportunities for collaboration between Western Science and Indigenous Knowledge. - Create accredited university training in Indigenous Mind and Traditional Knowledge. - Network indigenous healers worldwide. - Provide opportunities for youth to work with indigenous healers and scientists. - Ignite the Indigenous Mind in Western societies and facilitate the reemergence of indigenous healing and healers within post-modern, industrialized societies.
