What is a Wyakin?

According to tradition, Nez Perce youth would travel to an isolated area, alone and vulnerable, until visited by a guardian being known as a wyakin. Once revealed, their wyakin would guide and protect them for life. In this same spirit, we share each Warrior’s journey, providing care and protection as we walk with them toward a healthy future. Our Warriors are never alone.
