As part of the National Native Youth Network, a component of Generation Indigenous (Gen-I), CNAY created the Gen-I Youth Ambassador Program. Since its launch, over 200 young people have signed up for the program, including Celeste, Oglala Lakota, and Jason, Tohono O’odham.

CNAY in Action
CNAY staff and Native youth from our Champions for Change program traveled to Washington State twice in August to visit tribal communities and meet with Native youth from several tribes and urban Indian programs. The visits allowed us to learn from youth about priorities, including: access to dental care; suicide prevention; cultural activities; stronger enforcement of the Indian Child Welfare Act; and culturally-appropriate academic curriculum.
