Richard & Katherine Twiss
Co-Founders of Wiconi International


Quotes from Richard:

Katherine and I are grateful for the love and kindness of the Creator in our lives. We have been blessed and continue to grow in our love, friendship, respect and appreciation for each other after thirty-five years of marriage as well as having raised four remarkable sons. 

We continue to enjoy our journey together through the difficulties, challenges, disappointments and failures, as well as success's of life. Wiconi International was born out our dreams and visions to live meaningful and fulfilling lives as followers of the ways of Jesus. We want to serve and assist as many Native American people as possible to enjoy the kind of fulfilling life we have experienced as we journey together in our communities. 

Thank you for visiting us at our website and making our acquaintance. We would welcome your participation with us in serving our local Portland/Vancouver native community to work together towards a preferred and hope-filled future, or whatever community you call home. 

Let us introduce you to our family, who have all, in many ways, made it possible for Wiconi International to grow into the strong, growing national organization it has become these past fourteen years.
