Native youth councils and advisers find ways to connect!


UNITY affiliated youth councils around the country are finding ways to meet to discuss their initiatives and continue their community service projects. Youth on the Yavapai Apache Nation in Arizona met last month via Zoom video conferencing. They are re-organizing as a youth council. By the end of the meeting, the youth decided to work on positive messaging in the community. Some committed to creating posters with positive messages to hang in the community. Others said they would write notes to include in food baskets that were being distributed to the elders. UNITY’s executive director Mary Kim Titla was invited to be a special guest at the meeting.

When Hud Oberly (Osage, Caddo, Comanche) was announced as the new creative director of Urban Native Era (UNE) at the beginning of March he immediately went from a commonly-seen model for the brand to decision-maker of all things creative.

The two had already begun planning their first Urban Native Era Experience months before the public announcement.
