The Worldwide Indigenous Science Network (WISN) was founded in 1989 as a result of meetings between indigenous women, elders and Western scientists. Today our 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. We coordinate a global network of indigenous Elders and are advocates for at risk indigenous practitioners and traditional knowledge.We conduct research, host international conferences and cultural exchanges and with academic partners offer advanced degree programs in Indigenous Mind.
