Do you have a computer and modem? Do you have an Internet Account?
If so, you can access the wealth of information contained
in the Fourth World Documentation Project's
online documents archive.

The Fourth World Documentation Project was organized by the
Center For World Indigenous Studies in 1992. Its mission is
to make available to tribal governments, researchers and
organizations with an interest in the Fourth World, many of
the Center's documents and resources. The FWDP gathers
documents from nations and organizations around the world
and processes them into electronic text for distribution on
the Internet, Peace Net and other computer networks. These
documents form an electronic archive of voices from the
Fourth World.

This project has been undertaken by CWIS at its own expense
for the express purpose of disseminating the works of Fourth
World authors, researchers and governments as widely as
possible. The FWDP also archives State governments' and
international bodies' positions taken in regards to Fourth
World nations and peoples.

The FWDP archives contain over 300 documents on Fourth World
nations in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, Melanesia and
the Pacific. The documents include essays, position papers,
resolutions, organizational information, treaties, UN
documents, speeches and declarations. The FWDP archives
form a vital resource for tribal officials, researchers,
activists or anyone interested in Indigenous Peoples and our
past and present struggles to regain our land and freedom.
