Thank you to all of our participants for attending our 2019 Inter-Tribal Youth Summit!
The 2019 Inter-Tribal Youth Summit, organized by COPE, La Casa Roja, and the Zuni Youth Enrichment Program (ZYEP) brought together 200 youth and adults from across North America, including Indigenous communities from Alaska, South Dakota, Hawaii, Zuni and Navajo. The youth-led summit was a two-day event for youths to connect and discuss critical issues within their community, participate in hands-on workshops to build skills, and cultivate self-expression and network to spark youth-led activities
The summit was held in two days on November 15 and 16, 2019. Day 1 was held at the El Morro Theatre & Events Center located downtown Gallup, NM. Day 2 was held at Diné College in Tsaile, AZ followed by a trip to Canyon De Chelly in Chinle, AZ.
Students in grades 7–12th grade and college students up to their 2nd year were able to join the summit.
