NYEHE 2017

NY'EHE Brings Native High School Students to WSU

Native Youth Exploring Higher Education (NYEHE) is a summer camp for Native American high school students interested in exploring opportunities a college education offers. Participants will stay in the residence halls at WSU, attend hands-on workshops on a variety of majors, and hear from Native students and tribal professionals on the benefits and possibilities of pursuing higher education.

Throughout the five-day camp, we will be examining topics of interest to today’s tribal nations such as health, cultural preservation, and economic development. The students will form mock tribal councils, and through hands-on workshops will explore how higher education can serve their nations. A few of the workshops on the agenda are Food Sovereignty, Health Campaigns, Robotics, Sports Science, Podcast Making, Mural Painting, and cultural activities including Cedar Weaving, Salmon Smoking, Traditional Games, and Huckleberry Picking.

AGE: Students entering grades 9-10 in Fall 2017

WHEN: July 17-21, 2017


LOCATION: Washington State University, Pullman, WA

NY'EHE is made possible by support from Bonneville Power Administration.
