CNAY Hosts Youth Roundtable with Northwest School Youth

On Tuesday, February 16, CNAY Executive Director Erik Stegman held a youth roundtable with students from The Northwest School (NWS) of Seattle, Washington. In addition to sharing his experience as a former NWS student, Erik introduced students to CNAY’s work to elevate Native youth priorities and shared resources for supporting their personal, academic and professional growth. The youth then engaged in a small roundtable discussion, during which they shared some of their priorities related to climate change and health and wellness. The meeting concluded with an open Q&A session, where students asked about Erik’s experience working on tribal policy in the national capital, and Erik provided information and advice for those interested in working on Native issues.
