Wisdom of the Elders Inc

OCT Qualified
BIPOC-Led Organization


Wisdom of the Elders records, preserves and shares Native American oral history, cultural arts, language and traditional ecological knowledge of Indigenous elders, storytellers and tribal leaders, collaborating with tribes, arts and cultural organizations, educational institutions and many others. We strive to correct misconceptions, bring health and wellness to Native people, and demonstrate how Indigenous culture has and continues to enrich our world.

Bottom Line for Portland

By supporting our Indigenous led and staffed non-profit, people contribute to our essential cultural mission and continued representation.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Too much to list, but even beyond our own Multimedia and and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) work with our Indigenous peoples, we partner and collaborate with over 30 other local metro environmental, arts, education, and cultural organizations.
