Native Youth will complete a guided illustration activity after which they will learn to tell a meaningful story that takes ownership of and connects them back to their culture. In this event, youth will become stronger advocates for themselves and will learn how to give their individual experiences a powerful voice. Please join us as we share our untold narratives.
(Note: Materials for this activity will be shipped in advance.)
