The White House is honoring 11 Native youths in December as “Champions of Change.” The honor is part of an initiative started by President Barack Obama to honor young people working to better their communities through their own initiatives that spur positive change and help with issues like suicide prevention and healthy eating education.

One champion is Iko’tsiskimaki “Ekoo” Beck, Blackfeet, of Missoula, Mont., ICTMN reports.

    On December 1, 11 American Indian youth leaders will be honored as Champions of Change for their efforts to help improve the lives of those around them while address issues affecting their communities.

The honored youth will share their stories and participate in the White House Tribal Nations Conference, ICTMN reports.
