Nebraska Native Youth Gathering
April 20, 2022
The annual Gathering provides Native youth an opportunity:
- To connect with their peers from across the state of Nebraska;
- To gain traditional Native knowledge, skills, and practices;
- To share personal experiences; and
- To consider future career and college opportunities.
The Nebraska Native Youth Gathering centers on the idea of honoring the Sacred Hoop – body, spirit, heart, and mind.
Sessions address each of these components, emphasizing the importance for youth to examine their higher selves through information, connections, and experiences shared during the Gathering.
