About the Minnesota/Mnisota Tribal Youth Gathering
Native American youth face some of the most challenging disparities and barriers to success in the country; but their cultures, communities, and nations also provide them with tremendous strength and resilience. This is what inspired President Barack Obama to launch the Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) initiative in 2014—a nationwide call to action to strengthen resources for Native youth and build new platforms for their success across sectors.
The Minnesota/Mnisota Tribal Youth Gathering (MYTG) will be the first state gathering in the nation to take place as part of the Gen-I initiative. Our goal: to recognize and amplify the positive work Minnesota Native youth are doing to improve their communities, learn from them, and build a platform to inspire other Native youth across the state. Participants will have the opportunity to share their stories and work together with state leaders to create a brighter future for their generation and generations to come.
