Don Coyhis, a Mohican Indian born and raised on the Stockbridge-Munsee Reservation in Wisconsin, is an author and alcohol and addiction recovery counselor known for designing treatment programs primarily for Native Americans. He is the founder and president of White Bison, Inc., a non-profit charitable organization devoted to assisting Native Americans who are affected by substance use disorders. In 1994 Coyhis started the Wellbriety Movement which aims to reduce substance abuse among Native Americans. Coyhis feels that because historical and intergenerational trauma are responsible for much of the substance use seen among Native Americans, he argues that restoring cultural identity by returning to the principles, laws, and values of traditional Native culture promotes healing mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
