About Tapestry

whatwedoTapestry Institute is a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1998 by a Native American (Choctaw) scientist to operate within Indigenous worldview. We help people reconnect to the natural world — their own bodies, the earth, and things such as story that arise from the earth — by integrating different ways of knowing, learning about, and responding to the natural world. We carry out our work in community, through collaborative efforts among groups of people from highly diverse backgrounds, cultures, areas of expertise, and experience.
