Getting a good education and good jobs have long been issues for Native Americans, many of whom live in poverty. Now, President Barack Obama has announced a plan to better prepare young American Indians for college and careers. The announcement came as part of the recent White House Tribal Nations Conference in Washington. The new plan is called the Generation Indigenous initiative. It calls for the Department of the Interior to provide 1.2 million dollars to help six more tribes establish and run school systems. It also increases programs for teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics and efforts to keep native languages from dying out. More than 30 percent of American adults have graduated from college. At the same time, only about 10 percent of American Indians are college graduates. Louis Walking Elk, however, is studying for a master’s degree in environmental science at Sitting Bull College in North Dakota. He wants to use the degree to help people who live on his reservation. He is one of the first in his family to go to college. Sitting Bull College is one of more than 30 tribal colleges in the United States. About 300 students are completing their higher education at the school. Laurel Vermillion says many young Native Americans, especially men, are looking for direction and a sense of purpose. Today, 30 percent of students are male and 70 percent are female. Scott Davis leads the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission. He says tribal colleges give “hope to young Native Americans of a life of possibilities and escape from poverty.”
