In coordination with the All Pueblo Council of Governors' Greater Chaco Landscape Committee, we would like to cordially invite and encourage all New Mexico tribal youth to attend the Seventh Generation Gathering for the Protection of Greater Chaco on Saturday, July 8th from 10am-5pm at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. REGISTRATION IS FREE & WILL BEGIN at 9am!

In light of the growing movement among our native youth to actively re-engage in the protection of the life-affirming resources that have sustained our peoples since time immemorial, this gathering aims to center the complex situation of the Greater Chaco region to present opportunities for discussion and youth leadership development in the areas of environemtal justice and natural resource protection.

The goals of the gathering include:
1) Understand the significance of and our connection as tribal community members to cultural resources, natural resources, and economic sustainability, 2) Understand how the extractive industry (and other land-based industries) have affected community health with regard to the aspects mentioned above.
3) Talk about hopeful solutions and opportunities for further engagement and leadership.

We hope you’ll attend to represent your tribal nation. There will be local organizations providing information, resources, and opportunities for youth at the event along with live artists, a dance performance, and free food at lunchtime! We are also able to provide a partial travel reimbursement of $20.00 for the first 10 tribal youth councils to
