Warriors for a New Era: Support for emerging Native leaders, Part 3

2010-06-10 by

On April 16 at UAA, the last of five forums in the series “Warriors for a New Era: Challenging Alaska Native Young People to Repower their World” was held in Room 307 of the UAA/APU Consortium Library. The session was several hours long, and has been broken into several parts for podcasting.

Of the forums, organizer Larry Merculieff has said, “Younger generations need to know that they are important, and that they can get support from older generations to courageously meet the challenges facing them in the modern world.”

In Part 3, three Alaska Native leaders spoke to the group. They were Liz Cheney (Liz Medicine Crow), vice president of the First Alaskans Institute and director of the Alaska Native Policy Center; Harold Napoleon, author of ‘Yuuyaraq: The Way of the Human Being”; and Nelson Angapek, vice president of the Alaska Federation of Natives.
