|Welcome to Wisdom Keepers, Inc.!|
Wisdom Keepers, Inc. is a volunteer-driven 501-c-3 based in Knoxville, TN. Our mission is summarized on our seal …
“Creating opportunities to learn about indigenous cultures from indigenous peoples … Creating opportunities for indigenous cultures to preserve their past and improve their present for a stronger tomorrow.”
Our web site and our organization are going through some significant Escort Service Frankfurt changes right now, as we begin the process of rolling out our new strategic plan. We ask you to be patient during the next few weeks as we continually add new or updated information to our site.
In the meantime, we invite you to see sneak previews of our plans on our pages at Change.Org and Facebook. You can still access our current resources like Native Way Cookbook through the menu on the right side of any page. Also, check back here often for updates, information on current projects, volunteering and much, much more!
Grow Good Corn with Us!
In 2007, we found and took to heart two stories: Growing Good Corn from James Bender’s 1994 book, How to Talk Well, and the Daffodil Principle by an unknown author. We spent most of 2008 reflecting on those stories, counseling with elders, evaluating our progress to that point, and envisioning what role we felt we could play in the future.
The two stories talked about lessons we feel are central to effecting positive change – sharing ideas, efforts, and resources, and the power of perseverance and commitment. The two stories became even more poignant with the advent of the 2008 election results, economic crisis and the first bailout. If there was ever a time for sharing ideas, efforts and resources, the time is now and we can’t think of a better example of the power of perseverance and commitment to a cause than the election of this country’s first president of color.
So if you’re thinking things are starting to look a little “corny” around, here, you’re right! We’ve made “Growing Good Corn” not only our mission, but our vision and our values, and we’re planning on applying the Daffodil Principle to carry them out.
We want you to grow with us.
