In celebration of Earth Day, in collaboration with the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), UNITY will announce its 2021 Class of Earth Ambassadors during the NMAI Youth in Action Live broadcast. UNITY Earth Ambassador and 25 Under 25 Awardee Marco Ovando (Shoshone-Paiute Tribes), Kelsey Ducheneaux-Scott (Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe) and Jack Pashano (Hopi) will also discuss the role traditional ecological knowledge plays in their work as farmers and entrepreneurs.
Join the National UNITY Council Executive Committee and Peer Guides as they host Regional UNITY Meet Ups. During the virtual meet-ups, youth councils are invited to gather to grow relationships and work towards goals. These Regional Meet-Ups are a fun networking opportunity and a brainstorming session for how to address community challenges.
Not only will this be an opportunity for your leaders to connect with Native youth in your region, but UNITY would also like your tribe’s feedback in the National Youth Experience Survey (NAYES) launching this month! With your youths’ help, UNITY youth will determine the key regional needs for 2021 and develop strategies to create safe, healthy, and thriving communities.
