Module 4: Post 1

The WISN is the Worldwide Indigenous Science Network. I was interested in learning more about science from an Indigenous perspective to understand the differences and variations from Western science. On the home page of their website there is a section titled Science Research: https://wisn.org/category/indigenous-science-research/. This site shares information about how and when Indigenous science became recognized and coined as a term. It also highlights research that is currently being conducted. Their research library: http://library.wisn.org/ has categorized articles so they are easy to search. The categories include art, colonization, sacred sites, migration, traditional stories, star knowledge etc. This is really neat resource to gain a better understanding of Indigenous science and current areas of research. This network also has a variety of projects that are focused on empowerment, conservation and promoting research. They have one project that is a series of video productions! Great use of content creation and media to spread a message.
