Unity 2018

The Klamath Tribes Youth Council helped make history this year at the 42nd Annual 2018 United National Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY) Conference [July 5-9, 2018] by joining a record breaking 2,300+ youth attendees from across Indian Country.

Referred to as UNITY for short, this annual event is the largest and longest running Native American youth gathering in the United States, with the number of attendees growing steadily each year. Seven members of the Klamath Youth Council traveled to this years’ gathering at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego, CA, and were one of over 200 different youth councils representing their tribes and communities.

The council spent 6 full days networking with peers, professional facilitators, and tribal leaders from across the continent and beyond, attending a series of sessions and workshops where they gathered tools and knowledge to bring back to our communities, and also participated in various cultural exchanges and fun interactive activities.
