Year of Award: 
2022

White Bison is a Native American-operated nonprofit dedicated to creating and sustaining the grassroots Wellbriety Movement. For over 30 years, White Bison and their President and Founder, Don Coyhis, have provided culturally based healing to the next seven generations of Indigenous People, along with youth prevention and healing from unresolved grief and traumatic loss due to intergenerational trauma. The impact of White Bison runs deep through technical assistance for national policy organizations such as ONDCP and SAMHSA. Their programs are based on the values found in the Teachings of the Native American Elders and of the 12 Step program, holding a return to the Native American culture as key to the recovery and wellness of families and communities.

White Bison is a well-deserved second recipient of our new Diversity, Inclusivity, and Racial Equity award because of their dedicated and long-standing services and  resources to the Native American/Alaskan Native community nationwide.
