Native Youth Cultural Exchange
Ang Pòota is partnering with NYCE for the 2014 summer to provide our experiential outfitting services as well as our our education expertise to the exchange. The Native Youth Cultural Exchange (NYCE) an Affiliate project of the Seventh Generation Fund for Indian Development, is a Native leadership project infused with ancient cultural traditions and modern, progressive community revitalization strategies. The Exchange is designed to develop the capabilities of Native Youth to actively help their communities preserve and nurture their culture and environment.
NYCE was developed through community visioning to help Native youth increase their awareness of the importance of maintaining a perpetuating Native Culture. Many youth felt isolated and struggled with developing a global context in which their traditional culture was useful and pertinent. Through a series of seemingly unrelated events, fate brought Hawaiian Charter school educators, Hopi Youth Coordinators, and Pit River/Wintu community members together in the Hopi village of Kykotsmovi where they shared their concerns and love for youth and began building the foundation for what was to become the Native Youth Cultural Exchange.
