Our Vision

Facilitate trips for youth groups and college-age groups to come to our reservation to learn about Native people, our lives and worldviews, and to deconstruct missiological paradigms that have historically been destructive to Native people.

Facilitate the passing of Yakama culture through elders to youth—teaching and encouraging language, bead-work, drumming, traditional Yakama songs, tule mat making, basket making, root digging, gathering, hunting and fishing.

To provide high school graduates with college opportunities through scholarships and leadership development.

To hold weekly youth group meetings, providing a safe, healthy environment where spirituality is taught and social issues for Native youth are discussed.

To empower Native youth culturally, economically, spiritually and socially through various programs that speak to each of these areas.

To provide leadership development through a Youth Council and training.
