Astronism in Wallis and Futuna refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Territory of Wallis and Futuna. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Wallis and Futuna which is itself under the direct jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of France, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Wallis and Futuna Islands oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Wallis and Futuna is split into three traditional kingdoms, but does not hold any Grand Observatories.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Wallis and Futuna including:
