The White House recently hosted its first-ever "Tribal Youth Gathering", bringing together more than a thousand young indigenous Americans to discuss issues like youth suicide, substance abuse, barriers to education, and cultural preservation. We'll ask Native youth leaders about their experiences and community activism at 19:30 GMT.
