Pathkeepers Native Youth Campers visit the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C. where we meet with Nedra Darling, Mike Smith, Spike Bighorn, Jody Cummings, Gary Garrison, and Teddi.  We then had lunch at Fredericks Peebles & Morgan at their new D.C. office (bottom right) where representatives of Senator Dorgan's Center for Native American Youth joined us to share information about their organization's programs and efforts on behalf of Native youth.
