The Center serves as a clearinghouse of ideas between nations and between nations and states governments. CWIS receives documents, publications and undocumented information from throughout the world. These materials are carefully archived. Organizations, governments, and individuals frequently ask CWIS to provide information from Fourth World nations or about nations. We gather and store information and make it available.
Documents in this site are organized according to Subject Categories, Geographic Regions, Nations/Peoples, Native Literatures, Native Languages, Native Newsletters and Journals, Native Organizations, Bibliographies, Other Native information sites, NativeWeb Electronic Store, and Native Events Calendar.
