Here’s what you missed:
This listserv email shares information about the launch of the We R Native
R Native is a comprehensive health and wellness website resource made for and
by Native American youth. Out of the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health
Board (NPAIHB), We R Native
is inviting youth to get involved by participating in art and photo contests
about physical, sexual, and mental health, as well as life skills and
culture. Website viewers are also able to “Ask Auntie”
questions and navigate through a list of resources specific to health,
wellness and culture. Take a look at the new website and learn about their
newest contest (Racism Is
Wrong) asking Native youth to share stories about how you respond to
racism and stereotyping. Winning entries will receive a cash reward. The
deadline for this contest is October 15.
with every weekly email, we encourage you to visit our website (www.cnay.org) for a comprehensive list
of available resources (scholarships, fellowships, summer programs, grant
opportunities, etc.). Thank you for your continued support and interest in
the Center for Native American Youth.

Founded by former US Senator Byron Dorgan, the
Center is a policy program within the Aspen Institute, headquartered in
Washington, DC. While a part of the Aspen Institute, the Center is also
overseen by a Board of Advisors. The goal of the Center is to bring greater
national attention to the issues facing Native American youth, and to foster
solutions, with special emphasis on youth suicide prevention. How
you can help.
