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.
My Name is Jere and I live in Golovin. I go to Martin L Olson School and in the 5th grade. My favorite sports are Basketball and Wrestling. I like to go fishing with my dad.
I made a beaded family tree mobile. It has a picture of me with my mom and dad. I picked red because red is my favorite color. It was hard to bead. I am Chinik Eskimo. It is important for me to be part of the community of Golovin because we go fishing and pick berries together. Wit my family and friends we go hunting. We go to church together and celebrate many birthday and holidays together too. I am happy to be a Chinik Eskimo community member.
"Our youth are in a hard time right now. We face loss of language, culture, lives, and lack of representation in tribal and federal government. Every elder lost is one more speaker we cannot learn from. I created the Youth Enrichment Camp to target our loss of language and culture."
