The Buckeye Native Youth Scholarship Program
Our Continuing Effort to Honor and Respect Indigenous People
Native Scholarships applications are now being accepted for both weeks
Beltaine Week: April 29-May 5, 2018
Pathways Week: May 8-14, 2018
Our gatherings take place at Lake Concow which is in Concow Valley Band of Maidu country. Though we all have paleotechnologies in our ancestral past that we can reconnect with, just a few centuries ago the Indigenous tribes on this continent were living en masse in many of the ways that we are now attempting to relearn. The subsequent history of genocide and marginalization makes healing our present relations important to us. We seek to honor the continuing cultural legacy of Native America, as we work and learn together in the reality of today. In our continuing effort to honor and respect the indigenous people of this land, we seek connections with native communities.
Full and Partial Scholarships Available
One key component to this outreach mission is our Native Youth Scholarship Program. We have full and partial scholarships available for youth of Native American descent. Youth must be enrolled tribal members or descendants of enrolled tribal members. Acceptance includes five days of classes with a healthy breakfast and dinner served every day.
Applicants need to write a short essay about themselves, who you are and why you want to come to a Buckeye Gathering. Please include: your name, age, tribal affiliation, location, and contact information. A chaperone ticket(need not be native) (or tickets for larger groups) may also be awarded along with youth scholarships.
If you know any communities or individuals who could benefit from this, please let us know!
Apply early. Letters of request are now being accepted . In recent years all spaces have been filled. After March 30, any available openings will open up the scholarships to native adults. All requests will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
