National UNITY Council Adopts Resolution Supporting “Generation Indigenous”
During the recent 2015 UNITY Midyear Conference in Washington, DC, the National UNITY Council passed a resolution in support of President Barack Obama’s Native Youth initiative, which he announced during the annual White House Tribal Nations Conference. The “Generation Indigenous” initiative is a national effort that will focus on removing barriers that stand between Native youth and their opportunity to succeed. The aim is to focus on the: creation of Native Youth Community Projects; creation of a National Tribal Youth Network, launch of the Cabinet Native Youth Listening Tour; and creation and implementation of a White House Tribal Youth Gathering in the Summer of 2015.
UNITY will serve as a collaborative partner with President Obama and the Generation Indigenous Native Youth initiative in assistance with the implementation of its goals.
