Nebo Title VI Indian Education Program


Spanish Fork, UT


Diné and Northern Ute

Rose’s dream is to empower Native youth in her community to become stewards of the environment by teaching them how to be effective policy advocates and by participating in cultural activities highlighting traditional lifeways and the importance of caring for nature.

She will teach about the current policy efforts to protect the Bears Ears National Monument, share traditional teachings related to it, as well as take youth participants to visit the culturally significant site.

Rose is planning after-school activities and two ‘camp outs’ where Native youth will learn how to fish, forage for traditional foods, gather medicinal plants and other cultural activities. Rose hopes that her community will be empowered to protect their environment by teaching about traditional relationships with nature.
