Announcing Live Video Streaming to Originate from the White House Tribal Youth Gathering
The opening session of the White House Tribal Youth Gathering will be streamed live over the Internet beginning at 9:00 am Eastern time on Thursday July 9, 2015.
You may watch the opening session and other live events until 4:30 pm EST HERE.
UNITY in partnership with the White House, National Congress of American Indians, Today’s Native Leaders, Department of Health and Human Services, and Department of Justice will host the first-ever White House Tribal Youth Gathering in Washington, DC today (July 9, 2015) to provide American Indian and Alaska Native youth from across the country the opportunity to interact directly with senior Administration officials and the White House Council on Native American Affairs.
The Tribal Youth Gathering will continue to build upon the President’s Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) initiative and his commitment to improve the lives of Native youth across the country. President Obama launched the Gen-I initiative at the 2014 White House Tribal Nations Conference to focus on improving the lives of Native youth through new investments and increased engagement. This initiative takes a comprehensive, culturally appropriate approach to ensure all young Native people can reach their full potential.
Watch live events until 4:30 pm EST.
