Apela Colorado Ph.D., of Oneida-Gaul ancestry, founded the Worldwide Indigenous Science Network (WISN) in 1989 with assistance from the Canadian International Development Agency and private sector investment.

WISN brings together Western scientists and Indigenous practitioners of traditional knowledge in international workshops, conferences, and through overseas projects.

Cornflower’s sound emerges from the moment connecting you to your Soul. His voice calls us deeper into Presence utilizing modern mantra-like lyrics upon a landscape of vocal loops, he builds layers and dimensions of harmony and groove like a sonic tapestry into an anthemic chant to set your body ablaze in movement and prayer.
With influences ranging from Phish to Michael Jackson and Al Jarreau to Björk, Cornflower’s music is a mix of experimental vocal soul, world-funk, jam & electronica layered over a delicate balance of structure and improvisation.
Cornflower has shared stages with the likes of Michael Franti & Spearhead, Bobby McFerrin, Victor Wooten, Jeff Pevar, Ayla Nereo, Mike Love, Indubious, Jai-Jagdeesh, Fanna-Fi-Allah, Elijah Ray, Janet Stone, and best-selling authors James Twyman and Gary Zukav.
After his debut album “Journey Into Sound” in 2009, his newest releases “Explorations, Vol. 1”, “You Are The Medicine feat. Indubious" & “Monks on Main Street” are his most potent material to date.
