Congratulations to Santa Fe Waldorf School junior, Trinity Roybal, for her appointment to the inaugural Indigenous Youth Council in New Mexico. The New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (IAD) announced the establishment of the inaugural Indigenous Youth Council on April 2, 2021. The council was formed following two listening sessions that New Mexico Indian Affairs Department held with tribal youth from across the state.
Trinity, from P’osuwageh Owingeh (Pojoaque Pueblo/Water Drinking Place Village), was chosen for her interest in finding ways to get Native youth engaged on issues such as Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, language revitalization, and learning to grow traditional foods. She looks forward to being a part of the council and working with the other members to help connect Native people and assist in bringing much needed resources to Tribal communities.
Thank you, Trinity, for doing this important work!
