The Four Worlds International Institute

The Fourth Way transcends assimilation, resignation, and conflict by building partnerships with all nations and peoples.

FOUR WORLDS INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE

The Four Worlds International Institute (FWII) was established in 1982, at the University of Lethbridge, by Indigenous elders, spiritual leaders and community members from across Canada and the US.

FWII is an internationally recognized leader in holistic human, community and economic development because of the Institute’s unique focus on the importance of culture and spirituality in all elements of development. During the past 32 years FWII has worked extensively with Indigenous Peoples across the Americas and SE Asia.

The past four years a primary focus of FWII’S North American work is stopping the Alberta Tar Sands through supporting direct action, innovative social media approaches and actualizing International Treaties between Indigenous Nations. These efforts include: The International to Protect the Sacred from Tar Sands Projects, the International Treaty to Protect the Salish Sea and the Nawt-sa-maat Alliance.

In June, 2013, FWII officially opened the Four Worlds Foundation (FWF) at the City of Knowledge, Panama City, Panama. FWF serves as an international organizing and educational Hub for actualizing the Reunion of the Condor, Quetzal, and Eagle via the Fourth Way across the Americas and beyond! This unification effort, initiated in 1970 in Bolivia, was crystalized at the 5th Indigenous Summit of the Americas in Panama City, Panama in April, 2015, held in parallel with the 7th Summit of the Americas.

Global Challenges and Opportunities

During the past year, the emerging global issues and opportunities for change and transformation have clearly been demonstrated to us. The increasing global environmental disintegration and natural disasters, unforeseen calamities to many who experienced them! The growing instability and inevitable collapse of the world economic system! The increase in the extremes of wealth and poverty! The unraveling of humanity’s social and cultural fabric! Deepening ethnic and inter-religious strife! …

SELF-SUFFICIENCY, SOVEREIGNTY, AND ABORIGINAL SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM

Executive Summary



Given the present conditions in most Canadian First Nations, it is clear that merely tinkering with or adjusting the Canadian social security system has not, and will not, work. Aboriginal welfare reform will need to begin by re-conceptualizing what social security means for Aboriginal people. The role of a social security system can no longer be the provision of stop-gap programs and services for a small group of disadvantaged people, but rather must be conceived of as a comprehensive approach to building well-being and prosperity for all.

When looked at in this way, the…

Ending Physical and Sexual Abuse in our Indigenous Communities

  When our tribes and nations were still spiritually and socially strong and fully understood the devastating impact of sexual and physical abuse, abusers of women and children were dealt with very severely, including castration, death, or banishment.

As an example, my great-great grandfather, Hinhan Wicasa, Owl Man, was told in a vision he received on Medicine Butte, that he would kill four men, justifiably,  in his role as Head Chief and Leader of the Holy Man’s Society of the Magaska Ptesan Wicoti (White Swan People), Ihanktonwan Dakota.  …
