Native Wellness Institute was founded in 2000 by a knowledgeable and dedicated group of Native individuals, including tribal leaders, committed to making a positive difference in Indian country.

We are a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization serving as the leading provider of Native-specific and wellness-related training and technical assistance (strategic planning, program design and curriculum development) to Native people, communities, tribes and organizations throughout North America.

From bringing together the most highly-skilled Native trainers and consultants to share their knowledge and wisdom at large national conferences, to offering smaller regional workshops in Native communities that improve physical, spiritual, emotional and mental well-being, the Native Wellness Institute (NWI) is bringing about positive changes like no other organization of its kind in Indian country.
