Native American Issues

Former Senator Byron Dorgan Launches New Aspen Institute Policy Program

February 25, 2011  • Center for Native American Youth

We recently sat down with Senator Dorgan to talk about the establishment of the Center for Native American Youth, his new policy program at the Institute. The Center will formally launch with a series of events on February 28.

Senator Dorgan has long advocated for Native American issues on Capitol Hill and will continue to do so through outreach and policy development at the Institute. He spoke about his passion for the issue and the faces behind the harsh conditions endured by the country’s “First Americans.”

Erin Bailey will serve as director of the Center.
