Northwest Indian Storytellers Association (NISA) Mission Statement:

The Northwest Indian Storytellers Association (NISA) was formed in 2005 by Wisdom of the Elders, Inc. (WISDOM) to encourage, preserve and strengthen traditional storytelling among tribes and urban Indian communities in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. In the spirit of race reconciliation, NISA shares tribal oral tradition and cultural arts with our entire regional community at our annual storytelling festivals. NISA and its festival events contribute to Wisdom’s mission of Native American cultural sustainability, education and race reconciliation.
