White House To Host Tribal Youth Gathering, First Lady Michelle Obama To Deliver Address

July 9, 2015

On July 9, 2015, the first White House Tribal Youth Gathering will convene in Washington, DC, to provide American Indian and Alaska Native youth the opportunity to interact with senior Administration officials and the White House Council on Native American Affairs. The White House Tribal Youth Gathering, cosponsored by the White House and UNITY (United National Indian Tribal Youth), builds upon President Obama's Generation Indigenous (Gen I) initiative to improve the lives of Native youth nationwide. First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver remarks to participating tribal youth about her Reach Higher initiative, the value of education, and the importance of pursuing their dreams. Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason of the Office of Justice Programs will serve as a panelist and OJJDP Administrator Robert L. Listenbee will moderate one of the breakout sessions.


Watch a live stream of the White House Tribal Youth Gathering from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
