Koolamaski/ Hello my name is Faith Bowman. I am from the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Nation in Wisconsin and I am currently a graduate student at the University of Utah. am here as an alumni of the NCUIH Youth Council and to share with you the amazing work the 2020 Youth Council has been doing.
First, I want to say Anushiik, Yaw^ko, and give many thanks to all who participated in the Healing Gathering. The 2020 youth council is dedicated to helping Urban Native youth in their cultural, spiritual, and wellness journey. This year’s focus is on healthy relationships and indigenous love and overall wellness. As Native youth continue to struggle with wellness challenges because of COVID-19, NCUIH’s youth council wants to create a platform that amplifies youth voices and stories to the national level through its Indigi-Wellness Healer Campaign.
