at the UCLA - James West Alumni Center

Over the past two years, Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory of North America, an autonomous State Board of Education Authorized public Indigenous community-based charter school, has hosted an Indigenous youth-focused conference in partnership with SFUSD Migrant Education and American Indian Education. This year, in partnership with other Indigenous organizations and leaders, Anahuacalmecac is convening a youth-focused summit at UCLA in alignment with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association Conference in 2018. The Sentli Seeds of Sovereignty Summit seeks to create an opportunity to allow more high school age Indigenous youth to prepare for meaningful engagement in international fora such as the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues held annually at the UN headquarters in New York.  

The youth-focused pre-conference will be a space dedicated to high school age Indigenous youth and UCLA students to both coordinate and present on concepts, issues and proposals that are focused and led by Indigenous Peoples. This year's conference is co-sponsored by the UCLA American Indian Studies Center and will be held in the UCLA James West Alumni Center.

Additionally, we are proud to support our Summit participants' engagement with the 2018 Native American and Indigenous Studies Association Annual Conference (separate registration required).
