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 species (snow leopards, white lions, jaguars, and tigers), indigenous practitioners, and traditional wisdom. We coordinate a global network of Indigenous Elders and, with academic partners, we were the first to offer the world’s only advanced degree programs in Indigenous Mind.
