Two Ohkay Owingeh Boys and Girls Club members Selected to Attend White House Tribal Youth Gathering

This July, the White House will host a Tribal Youth Gathering with the intention of fostering dialogue between Native youth and senior Administration officials. Two young women from Ohkay Owingeh Boys and Girls Club have been selected to attend the event, where they will share with top officials and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs their ideas about improving the lives of Native youth.

Taylor Moya, age 16, and Jordan Cailey Moya, age 15, are both active members of their community and are passionate about outreach. “Giving back to my community is important to me because it manifests a feeling of happiness,” writes Taylor. “I am proud to take part in my culture because there are many Native Americans that are losing their culture."

After attending a robotics event, Jordan was disappointed at the lack of participation from her fellow Club members. She decided to change this and, with the help of Club Director Jay Abeyta Jr., she designed robotics curriculum for the Club and now helps teach robotics classes for her peers. Both Taylor and Jordan are also involved with many other development efforts, including volunteering for child welfare organizations within their community. Good luck, Taylor and Jordan; you will both make excellent representatives!
