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.

Silent No Longer: Pope Francis, Dismantle The Machine

Ask And Ye Shall ReceiveFrom Doreen In my view, the more open our minds and hearts during these end times, the more ease and grace flow. The more humans who consciously consent to dismantle the machine, as requested by Judge Anna to Pope Francis below, the more our Creator is empowered to respond in kind.The government interprets public silence as implied consent. Every PUBLIC NOTICE of CONSENT WITHDRAWAL to Pope Francis, the government, lawyers, judges, sheriffs, etc., implies living humans…See More

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.  …

89th Anniversary Celebration of Guna Revolution, February 2014

The Guna First Nation is composed of 51 communities stretched across 350 Islands in a territory 232 miles long and 130 square miles. The Guna First Nation is governed by two General Congresses.  One General Congress takes care of all political and economic issues and the other General Congress cares for all spiritual and cultural issues.

 The Guna First Nation declared their freedom from Panamanian Colonial rule on February 25, 1925.  The Guna First Nation has continued to retain their language, culture, spirituality and autonomy since that time. The ancient Indigenous symbol on the Guna First Nation flag, sometimes called the "Circle of Life" or the "Whirling Logs", is found in Indigenous Nations across the Americas, including the Hopi and Yakima Nations in North America. The “Circle…

We Are Only Here For a Short Time

I give my heartfelt thanks giving to our Beloved Creator, that I can say at 70, as my beloved father always told me, “Son we are only here for a short time!" Or like Crow Foot said, "Life is like the breath of a Buffalo on a cold day or a fire fly on a warm summer day or the shadows vanishing before the setting sun!" Then we travel to other planes of existence as different from this physical world as this physical world is different from the womb world in which we were conceived! When we leave behind our "Earth Suit" we only take with us those spiritual qualities that we have developed on our spiritual journey in this physical world. 

It is my experience and understanding that these spiritual qualities are primarily manifested through our…
