(WISDOM) to encourage, preserve and strengthen traditional storytelling among tribes in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, and to share tribal oral tradition and cultural arts with our entire regional community. NISA and its festival events contribute to Wisdom’s mission of Native American cultural sustainability, education and race reconciliation.
