North Dakota Tribal Kids on a “Power” Trip

February 25, 2009

New Town, ND – Starting Friday, an estimated 10,000 young people from across the country will converge on Washington, D.C., for "Power Shift 09." It's an event designed to showcase a need to reduce carbon emissions, create green jobs, and transition to clean energy through new climate and energy legislation.

Among those attending will be Native American youth from North Dakota, and Ryan Eagle with the organization Native American Teens in Vital Empowerment is taking several tribal kids from New Town.

"This is a great opportunity for them to participate in gathering with other students from across the nation, and to meet our senators, our congressman, and get involved in the political process as well."

Eagle says his group of young people has already taken "green" action on the Fort Berthold Reservation.

"We have been planting trees throughout the reservation, establishing recycling projects throughout the reservation, trying to harness wind energy, as well as solar energy, here in North Dakota."

Eagle says many of the young people have never traveled outside the state. They board a bus in Bismarck on Thursday and arrive in D.C. Friday.
