Our Vision is for all Native American youth to lead full and healthy lives, to have equal access to opportunity, and to draw strength from their culture and inspire one another.

A single stick can easily be broken, but multiple sticks bundled together are almost impossible to break. The same can be said for family, an individual person cannot take the weight and pressure of the world alone, but can withstand any storm with the support of family. As Native American people, the relationships we have with our family, whether blood relation or otherwise, make up who we are. Winds will come but the strength of our family is always there to keep us going. The future of our people is bright because of our undeniable strength growing with each generation.
"Not only we as Natives, but we as people, need to start investing in youth to combat the hardships they face. These challenges have gone on for far too long and we can be the generation to stand up and make change."
