The inaugural Summit occurred in September 2018 at the Cherokee Ranch & Castle in Sedalia, CO. It brought together over 30 young leaders (both Native and non-Native) from the Arapaho, Shoshone, Lakota, Navajo and Choctaw tribes as well as from across the greater Denver metropolitan area to discuss pressing issues and share wisdom, experiences and traditions. The Summit aimed to raise awareness around the powerful repercussions of our shared history, create lasting friendships and identify current issues impacting both cultures. The Summit culminated in a Celebration Dinner and a Powwow/Community Gathering.
