Gold medal-winning Olympian Billy Mills, Lakota, hosted his fifth annual Dreamstarters closing ceremony on Tuesday night in Alexandria Virginia just outside of Washington D.C. to wrap up a four-day Dreamstarter Academy in which Native youth - who were awarded 10,000 grants to pursue their dreams - were honored and wrapped with an official Billy Mills-designed Pendleton blanket.

This is the fifth year celebrating dreams and aspirations of 10 Native youth from the ages of 14-30 years-old in the Dreamstarter's 'Running Strong for American Indian Youth,' an organization championed by Billy Mills.
