Native American Youth: Changing the Narrative (VIDEO)

Watch Live Nov. 19 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm EST.

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 retired Senator Byron Dorgan and feature Native youth and national leaders who are advocating for racial equity and changing the way the world views tribal nations.
