In February, Dahkota Brown held a gathering for Native youth from Northern California through a program he started called NERDS, which stands for Native
Education Raising Dedicated Students. He brought together 9 different tribes & youth organizations, who brought almost 100 students & 23 booths
including colleges, health resources, scholarship opportunities, cultural resources, future career options, and many more.They had various keynote speakers
and fun events planned throughout the day. The main event consisted of a scavenger hunt that gave all the booths an equal chance to have students gain
information and required the students to work together.
