Institute for Indigenous Knowledge

Our first mission is to develop and offer academic programs and resources in partnership with Syracuse University in order to practice, protect, enhance and disseminate Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) knowledge for future generations.

The vision of the HIIK is the creation of a positive environment for the illumination and cultivation of traditional indigenous knowledge to enhance human relationships with each other and the natural world to fulfill our responsibilities for the continuation of life.
