Each year, during the National UNITY Conference, there is a National UNITY Council business meeting that takes place. It is here the voting members (one male and one female from every affiliated youth council and affiliated individual members of UNITY) elect new members to the National UNITY Council Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is comprised of t Co-Presidents, one male and one female, and ten Area Representatives to represent the ten geographical regions within the UNITY network.
Not just one, but two UNITY 25 Under 25 awardees and former National UNITY Executive Committee members were crowned as Mr. and Miss Indian Arizona State University at the recent scholarship pageant. Congratulations to Tashoni Morales, of the Tachi-Yokut/Te-Moak W. Shoshone tribes, and Lance Sanchez, of the Tohono O’odham Nation, as they continue to inspire the Native youth across Arizona.
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.
