Native American Youth: Changing the Narrative

November 20, 2014

Native American youth are often overlooked in the national dialogue and continue to be misrepresented by negative, race-based stereotypes. In recognition of National Native American Heritage Month, the Center for Native American Youth’s public event will highlight perspectives on racial equity from experts in Indian Country — including Native young people themselves — to inspire policymakers, foundations, and other advocates to make Native youth a priority. The panel discussion will be moderated by Sen. Byron Dorgan (ret.) and feature Native youth and national leaders who are advocating for racial equity and changing the way the world views tribal nations.
