Worldwide Indigenous Science Network (WISN) – Three Decades of Applied Indigenous Science: A New Science Grounded in Sacred Site and Tradition


Global projects spanning 35 years of engagement with Indigenous Elders and Sacred Site Guardians, WISN works from the leading edge of applied Indigenous research through integrating the best of western and Native Sciences. Offering the academic community education rooted in Ceremony, Ancestral Healing and Decolonization, WISN developed the Indigenous Mind Program, an advanced degree program for students of multi-tribal backgrounds in search of Indigenous roots and identity. Guided and attended by Elders, the program holds space for scholars, activists, artists, and healers of different cultural lineages to explore life-ensuring buffer zones and bridges between western and Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
