Thank you for your interest in the Native American Youth Summit. Sponsorships are needed to help fund speakers, food, and t-shirts for our youth. The Summit will be held in-person in 2022 in collaboration with Native American Day. SUPAMAN will be providing the Summit's Keynote. The youth will also participate in the Opening Ceremonies, Dances, and Closing Ceremonies for the Day. Following the closing ceremonies, SUPAMAN will be live on the stage at Dream Keepers Park. 

We are expecting a large turn out this year of 200 to 300 youth. Your sponsorship means so much to each of them. Sponsorship benefits include sponsor logo on back of Summit shirt, recognition on our website and in social media.
