The following story was written by Jared Massey.
"And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell, And I understood more than I saw; For I was seeing in a sacred manner." Black Elk, Black Elk Speaks
My ancestor's fought to ensure the future of my people would be prosperous and filled with opportunities. Opportunities such as the one I embarked on. As a young Native American, the likelihood of traveling to a land beyond the boarders of the country were slim to none, so I thought. My journey abroad has taught me lessons I’ll never forget, and began with five college students simply wanting to create change in a foreign land.
Arizona State University’s Chi Alpha is a Christian organization centered around the idea of creating an authentic community on campus. My journey to Europe was made possible through this amazing life-changing organization. I encourage other youth, seek authentic community and faith while pursuing higher education.

Mesa, AZ – The United National Indian Tribal Youth, Inc. (UNITY) has announced the first thirteen members of its re-established UNITY Earth Ambassadors Leadership Program. The environmental stewardship program was started in the 1990’s, but due to funding challenges, was suspended until this year when the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community agreed to provide partial funding for its return.
The new class will attend training sessions and informational workshops to increase their knowledge of environmental issues affecting Native America, learn to serve as an ambassador to increase awareness of the issues affecting the environmental quality on Native lands, and promote the efforts to address environmental concerns within the nation’s Native communities. Topics will focus on, but not limited to, recycling, conservation, regeneration, and restoration.
