FTYP's Rekindling 7 Generations

Rekindling 7 Generations (R7G) maintains a cooperative mission of all past CPN youth-related programs. We aim to nurture the spiritual, mental, physical, and social development of Potawatomi and Native youth and their community by rooting them in their Potawatomi culture, familial and intergenerational bonds, and intertribal relationships to grow the future tribal leaders, citizens, and partners of Citizen Potawatomi Nation. The vision of R7G is that our next generation will develop and renew respectful, reciprocal, and responsible relationships with themselves, their peers, their communities, and future generations. Non-Native students are welcome to participate in our programs because it is important for all youth to have a better understanding of their peers and larger communities in which we all live together.
