This week, more than 200 American Indian youth and adult leaders from 53 tribal communities across the country convened at the week-long 2012 National Intertribal Youth Summit in Washington, DC. Students arrived Saturday to attend the Summit which featured Federal officials from the White House and the Departments of Justice, Interior, Health and Human Services and Education. The Summit provided a unique opportunity for Federal officials to hear directly from tribal youth through discussions on topics such as education, health, cultural preservation, civic engagement, and leadership development.
