Prepared to Lead

With the recent announcements of a Fulbright scholarship for CWIS director Rudolph Ryser, and the doctorate in Traditional Medicine Policy for CWIS fellow Mirjam Hirch, it is time to usher in a new era of prestige and prosperity for the organization. For tribal colleges, universities worldwide, and the UN, CWIS is a trusted and recognized resource. As the premier indigenous think tank in the world, it is time for CWIS and its associates to come into their own through endowments that enable it to continue to serve and grow alongside the world indigenous peoples movement. Perhaps in the near future, we can hold more formal discussions on this topic. To point out the obvious, we are prepared to lead.
