In partnership with the Aspen Institute Citizenship & American Identity Program,
the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) and Generation Indigenous (Gen-I) are collecting insights from Native youth ages 24 and under across the country about what our community members
believe every 21st century American should know.
The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) estimates that in 2016, 22% of AI/ANs lived on reservations or other US Census-defined tribal areas while 60% of AI/ANs lived in metropolitan areas.
"I want to help knock out stereotypes because Native Youth should be confident in their identity. These outcomes need to and will change in my community, even if it takes years."
