About this resource

This is a support service for Native youth which has information on its website for Native youth who may be experiencing kinship care, foster care, or adoption. For Native Youth, By Native Youth We R Native: We are a comprehensive health resource for Native youth, by Native youth, providing content and stories about the topics that matter most to them. We strive to promote holistic health and positive growth in our local communities and nation at large. Values: "We are Native. We are members of diverse and vibrant communities. Learn more about your culture, history, and current events. I am Strong in mind and spirit. By sharing with one another, we can teach each other lessons about self-confidence, self-respect, pride, courage, and spirituality. I control My Body. My body is mine and mine alone. I have control over my physical and sexual health. We are Not Alone. Regardless of the issue, there are other Native teens and young adults going through the same life challenges....hear their stories and share your own. Together we can support one another through tough times and come out stronger in the end. We can Change our World. Community involvement is something that can start small and make a big impact. We have the tools you need to get started shaping your community in positive ways." The Dear Auntie Video on the website can also be found on YouTube and contains helpful information for family members of native youth who enter foster care at: https://youtu.be/tPvaiq_b0jU
