Native youth voice is powerful. One way of expressing that voice is through the adoption of a national initiative by the National UNITY Council (NUC). The initiative paves the way for UNITY youth and others to take part in a special movement and to help make an impact in Indian Country. After much reflection by the NUC’s affiliated youth councils and elected youth leaders, UNITY is pleased to announce “Opportunity for Unity: Our Home is Here” initiative.
