Welcome to the Continental Society website. CSDIW was organized in Atlanta, Georgia in 1988. Our organization is comprised of women who are citizens of either the United States of America, The Dominion of Canada, or Mexico, who are not less than sixteen years of age and is the lineal descendant of a Native American or Immigrant American ancestor who participated in any capacity, such as Passive Service, or in actual hostilities, one against the other, during the period May 14, 1607 to 1900. Acceptable service is listed on the Membership page of this website.
Our objectives are to strengthen fellowship and to encourage cooperation between descendants of Native Americans and Immigrant Americans; to preserve records and historic sites associated with Native Americans; to promote education through scholarships to Native American Students, and to provide books and school supplies to Native American schools.
My theme for this administration is the Turtle. The Turtle is an important symbol in Native American symbolism. It represents Mother Earth and signifies good health and long life. My Scripture is “For the body is not one member, but many.” By supporting the education of Native Americans, we can make a difference.
We encourage the membership of descendants of Native Americans. If you are a direct descendant of a Native American, you will be recognized with a certificate and the opportunity to purchase our new insignia teepee pin that can be worn on your official ribbon.
