The Wayfinders Circle is a network dedicated to unleashing the transformative potential of Indigenous
lifeways, inspiring all people to re-imagine development, conservation and the way they relate to each
other and to Mother Earth.
The Wayfinders Circle was established to amplify Indigenous leadership that manifests a time-tested
understanding of human responsibility to Mother Earth. Wayfinders demonstrate resilience and maintain
the cultural and spiritual continuity of Indigenous communities. The Wayfinders Circle will inspire strong
courage for transformative actions to protect Mother Earth and the wellbeing of all life.
The Pawanka Fund and Nia Tero, with the guidance from the Council of Spiritual Elders from the
International Union of Indigenous Spiritual Practitioners are the initial conveners of the Wayfinders Circle.
