Celebrating Native American Voices-Native Youth, Our Future, Our Inspiration

November 20, 2012

Senator Byron Dorgan and the Center for Native American Youth invite you to celebrate National Native American Heritage Month by hearing the inspirational stories of our youngest First Americans. The event is a dialogue about the importance of portraying Native children in a positive light and sharing positive stories in Indian Country. The Center’s founder, Senator Byron Dorgan, announces the creation of the Center’s Champions for Change (CFC) program, a spinoff of a White House Initiative, created to recognize and encourage inspirational Native American youth working in their tribal or urban Indian communities to promote hope and make a positive impact.
