programs and approaches that are improving the situation.Senator Dorgan with kids

Native youth, tribal leaders and tribal youth program staff from around the
country are invited to attend, tell their stories and engage with each other on
what is is and is not working in their communities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from former US Senator Byron Dorgan, the Center’s chairman and founder; Dave Anderson,
founder of Famous Dave’s restaurants and the former Assistant Secretary – Indian
Affairs at the US Department of the Interior; and Sam McCracken, General Manager
of Nike’s Native American business, and Chairman of Nike N7.  These are some
great speakers who are not to be missed!
