Generation Indigenous: Meet These Outstanding Youth Ambassadors

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 7th, 2014 Last Updated on: December 7th, 2014

Earlier this week President Obama announced his plans to help our Native youth by creating a new initiative called Generation Indigenous, or “Gen-I”. But it takes everyone getting involved in their communities to help and lead the way. That's why this short clip from MTV highlights those that are already changing their communities in a big way. These youth ambassadors were selected to attend the sixth annual Tribal Nations Conference, which was held at the White House. Some of the youth featured in the documentary include Janay Jumping Eagle (Oglala Sioux), Dahkota Kicking Bear Brown (Wilton Miwok Rancheria), Zunneh-bah Martin (Navajo).
