“Ogichidaa Oyate, meaning 'Young Warriors' in Anishinaabe and Lakota, is the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) district-wide American Indian Youth Council. With generous funding from our 2017-18 grant, we have been able to build the foundation for our work in growing strong American Indian tribal and community leaders. Our focus for the 2018-19 school year will be multifaceted; we will be engaging with existing council participants while inviting newly seated members to this work. There will be continued development of American Indian identity and advocacy; building professional skills; culturally specific learning opportunities; and, the opportunity to build leadership skills.”
