Warriors for a New Era: Support for emerging Native leaders, Part 2

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 multiple 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 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.
