President Barack Obama announced an initiative on Wednesday aimed at improving conditions and opportunities for American Indian youth, more than a third of whom live in poverty. Obama's Generation Indigenous initiative calls for programs focused on better preparing young American Indians for college and careers, and developing leadership skills through the Department of Education and the Aspen Institute's Center for Native American Youth. Members of the president's staff also plan to visit reservations next year. This is great news and I would like to thank president Obama because I've always had a fascination for Native American cultures.
I grew up reading Sergio Bonelli's comic books that are centered around the old Wild West where I discovered the beauty of the Native American way of life.
