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.

In Part 2, Alaska Native students react to the challenges of leadership. Their comments cover selfless leadership, depression in their villages, and the difficulty a college graduate experiences when he or she returns to the village. Their comments are particularly moving and heartfelt.

2010-03-03 by News, Sports, and Art

Alaska Native tribes are committed to protecting, at the village level, the lands and waters upon which they depend for subsistence, culture, traditional language and community wellness. Tribal leaders have spent decades working to forge tribal self-sufficiency, self-determination and healthy lands and waters so their cultures and communities can survive and thrive. The next generation needs to know how great tribal leaders have dedicated their lives to lead their people through conflicts and challenges. Speakers include Earl Polk, Paul Ongtogruk, Tina Woods and Larry Merculief. This series is supported by UAA and the Alaska Humanities Forum.

This podcast was recorded Jan. 26, 2010.
