The Tri S Foundation

The Tri S Foundation is a 501C3 non-profit corporation with the purpose of discovering and publishing indigenous wisdom and emerging voices. We want to bring forward neglected wisdom in order to enliven and renew the contemporary culture.

Why the name Tri S?
We have three primary vehicles of presentation:
The written Story — Books and eBooks
The recorded Sound — Audio programs and podcasts
And both of these brought to the Screen — Video programs

What are we up to now?
