Niitsitapi Nation – Ferris H.S. Leadership Club

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!

I’m a white mom with an 18 year old son whose father is choctaw. My son was not raised by his father and hardly knows him. He feels sad and wants to connect with other indigenous kids but doesn’t feel that he has the right. How can I help him?
