Centre for World Indigenous Studies

“The Center for World Indigenous Studies (CWIS) is an independent, non-profit [U.S. 501(c)(3)] research and education organization dedicated to wider understanding and appreciation of the ideas and knowledge of indigenous peoples and the social, economic and political realities of indigenous nations.”

Many of the articles and links on this site attempt to show where indigenous cultures fit in the international scheme.  Indigenous culture and society are referred to as the Fourth World Nations.  This site has link to their own research as well as research done by others.  The resources and related sites listed on this website would be a great starting point to anyone looking to find out about indigenous rights around the globe and the issues, both past and present faced by Fourth World Nations.
