Growing Leaders in Native American Communities: An Interview with Gerald Eagle Bear
Hill, Sara
Afterschool Matters, n5 p20-22 Spr 2006
In the summer of 2005, I interviewed Gerald Eagle Bear about his work to promote civic and cultural engagement among Native American youth. Eagle Bear is program manager of the Oyate Networking Project, an affiliate of Christian Children's Fund, in Mission, South Dakota. The organization focuses on early childhood education, youth violence prevention, and community education. It holds an annual Youth Leadership Conference in Rapid City, SD; last April's conference drew 550 participants from five states. Participants in the conference are recruited through advertisements in magazines and Native American newspapers. In addition, Eagle Bear visits schools and makes door-to-door visits to recruit youth.
