We are pleased to announce a new email listserv for local Native youth in 8th grade and above (including high school, college, community college, trade school, graduate school, etc.)!
It is firstname.lastname@example.org, and we use this listserv to share announcements of events, scholarships, college/school/job fairs, or anything else that may be beneficial for Native youth from age 13 and up through 25+. Yáan'iiftihansas means “ones who are just growing;” young people. It is the plural of yáan'iiftihan. If you would like to enroll in this listserv (either because you are a young Native person or because you would like to post events/announcements to it), please email email@example.com and Colleen will be happy add you to the listserv. Yôotva!
