Tenai Tortice

Tenai Tortice, White Mountain Apache, age 14, comes from the state of Arizona. He hopes to collaborate with new people, especially native youth now that he’s a #WRNambassador. Being an ambassador is going to allow him to learn new perspectives and aspects of problems facing Native youth in their communities. He is passionate about Native youth being aware of who they are and knowing their identity. His biggest message is to let Native youth know, They Matter! Tenai started his own program called, “YoUnG”, which reaches out to youth through hip-hop and music. He recently hosted and facilitated his own event through his program and promoted gang prevention, health awareness, and drug and alcohol prevention. A strong leader and great public speaker, we are glad to welcome Tenai to the We R Native team.

Hello! First off I wanted to thank you for taking the time to do this & help educate others. It is greatly appreciated! My question is how I can make art & spread awareness about indigenous issues as a white woman. I grew up in the black hills of South Dakota and recently lost a friend who was m*rdered & she is now part of the long list of MMIW. I am a talented artist & want to make pieces to bring light to this issue and sell as NFTs, with all proceeds donated to MMIW & programs back home to help young women. Being white though, I want to tread carefully and do this right. Any advice and recommendations are appreciated! #MMIW #LongLiveDominiqueBrave
