The 2013 Native Youth Summit took place August 23-26, 2013 at the Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City, Michigan. This was the National Indian Health Board’s (NIHB) 3rd Annual Native Youth Summit and was held in advance of our premiere conference, the National Annual Consumer Conference --The Dawn of a New Health Care System: Transforming Tribal Health through Tradition and Change. In keeping with the theme of transformation and standing on tradition, this year’s Tribal Youth Health Summit focused on two critical health issues in Indian Country: cancer and diabetes.
In 2012 the Annual Consumer Conference in Denver, Colorado featured the 2nd Annual Native Youth Track. This track brought together Native Youth from around Indian Country to develop digital stories focused on health and wellness in their communities. These stories created by the youth over a two day Digital Story workshop dealt with topics ranging from Obesity to Suicide to Stress and Cultural Identity.
