The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian is providing live programs for students of all ages who are interested in a more inclusive, accurate and complete education about Native America.

The new series of free webinars “Youth in Action: Conversations About Our Future” is targeted to middle and high school students. Students can hear from young Native activists and change makers from across the Western Hemisphere who are working toward equity and social justice for Indigenous peoples.

In the U.S., Native Americans experience higher suicide rates than any other racial or ethnic group, and mental wellness is an integral part of combating this issue. On Thursday, Sept. 17, at 4 p.m. (EDT), students can join a conversation about community healing and learn how Native youth at the forefront of the mental health movement are addressing mental wellness by creating their own community-based programs, resources and advocacy.
