Date : Saturday, January 11, 2014
Time : 9am-430pm.
About - As sovereign bodies, we would like to provide a safe space to conduct healthy conversations and complete actions that are driven
by Native youth.
Description - Making spaces for people to converse, plan, and organize to invoke and
contribute to the movement -#RisingNativeYouth#RNY2014
Objective - As sovereign bodies, we would like to provide a safe space to conduct healthy conversations and complete actions that are driven by Native youth for Native communities. We are based out of the Four Corners area and ideas will not reflect all Native youth thinking as a whole.
Our mission is to provide Native youth the proper platform to speak on issues that limit our ability of progression. We are only scratching the surface by giving the community a voice.
