Worldwide Indigenous Science Network

The Worldwide Indigenous Science Network (WISN) was founded in 1989 as a result of meetings between indigenous women, elders and Western scientists. Today their membership includes tribal elders, scientists, conservationists, scholars and women’s organizations from cultures around the world. All share a common vision of rediscovering and applying ancient wisdom for today’s time. WISN has been implementing this directive for nearly three decades. If you are trying to find your indigenous mind and powers, WISN offers the Indigenous Mind program. If you are an indigenous healer who wants to network globally or need urgent assistance, WISN offers Elders’ networking support. In accordance with the issues and with respect to the forces of Mother Earth, they conduct cutting-edge research using their innovative indigenous science approaches and protocols. In all of the actions and programs, they strive to promote respect, understanding and empowerment that comes from knowing their true identities and relation to life in all of its forms. Mission “Earth Wisdom and Change” guides WISN’s activities in its overall mission of creating global healing for humanity and its relationship to embodied knowledge. 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. They conduct research, host international conferences and cultural exchanges, and provide advocacy with international partners for endangered indigenous practitioners and traditional wisdom. They coordinate a global network of indigenous Elders and, with academic partners, they were the first to offer the world’s only advanced degree programs in Indigenous Mind.
