The 2024 Nebraska Native Youth Gathering will be a Hybrid conference, allowing youth from all regions of Nebraska to attend and learn about Native culture and career options to strengthen indigenous leaders.
Designed to engage 8th-12th grade students, who identify as Nebraska American Indian youth, this annual gathering aims to enhance the individual and collective understanding of spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well-being.
April 17, 2024 | 9:30 am – 2:30 pm CT
Registration closes on April 4, 2024
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.
