We had 365 attendees, we would like to thank everyone who came to the youth conference. We are happy to have another successful event.

UNITY Midwest Region:

The Red Lake Youth Conference was so much fun and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to run a workshop! Walking the "Miikawaadizi" Fashion Show in the morning with fellow Youth Council members, as well as getting the chance to talk about UNITY on the Red Lake Nation Radio! I'm so proud of how far these conferences have grown and I cannot wait to see any other future events/plans hosted by the wonderful Red Lake Youth Council!

Enjoy the photo candids of the conference and my workshop!

My UNITY workshop:

In today's workshop, youth were broken into small groups to identify issues within their own communities, and discussing what their "ideal" Rez looks like. They then chose one issue from their list and worked together within their groups to craft a solution! At the end of each workshop, they had to present their #1 Problem + #1 Solution to the whole group! Todays goal was to push the self confidence within indigenous youth, because we are all worthy of making change within our very own communities

Super proud of what all the youth were able to come up with! We always learn something new!

Super proud of the Red Lake Youth Council as well for putting on this beautiful educational youth conference! Red Lake Nation Youth Council
