In June, Jaycee Carrywater Jr.(Cheyenne/Lakota), age 15 and the Niitssitapi Nation (Ferris H.S. Leadership Club) from Spokane, Washington helped breakdown stereotypes while giving back to their community. The group applied for and received a We R Native mini grant for $475. They budgeted their moneyand purchased deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, bread, deli meat and cheese. After going to the store and purchasing these materials, they puttogether care packages to bring to their local homeless shelter. The event was a success and the group shared their stories on our YT channel!
