MUNI has successfully implemented its first independent summer program!
Thank you to everyone who supported Model United Nations Indigenous this summer! Thanks to your support we had a great three and a half week program. Congratulations to our delegates for completing our program:
- Jeamilett Martinez (Mazahua and Mixtec)
- Yvette Massey (San Carlos and White Mountain Apache Tribe)
- Ephraim McCowan (CRIT)
- Rowan Monte (Jicarilla Apache and Southern Ute)
- Codie Rae Topetchy (Kiowa, Comanche, Otoe, and Pawnee)
- Regan Rose (Klamath, Oregon)
- Sierra Marie Buffalohead (Ponca Tribe of OK)
This summer, our delegates learned how the United Nations created policy, and practiced public speaking, problem solving, team work, essay writing, and research skills. We worked 5 days a week, and ended the program on a simulation of the United Nations.
MUNI is working on our next program for the winter term, stay tuned!
MUNI is registered as an NGO with the United Nations!
In March, 2019, Model United Nations Indigenous was accepted as a registered NGO in the UN DESA (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs) Civil Society database. As such, MUNI is able to apply for credentials for UN events, including the annual UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII).
MUNI applied and was accepted for credentials to attend the UNPFII in March, 2019. Three of our NHSMUN participants were able to attend and they experienced the working of the UN Permanent Forum! Our esteemed Native youth delegates at the UNPFII 2019 were Emily Staley, Zaden Salabye, and Kianna Joe (all Navajo).
In March 2021, MUNI will be eligible to apply for consultative status under the UN's Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). This will provide an avenue for young Native leaders to directly participate in the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and testify on behalf of Native youth in the global arena! JOIN MUN Indigenous to learn how to engage at the United Nations and gain the opportunity to participate as an official Native Youth Delegate at the UNPFII. This is the time for Native Youth to have our voices heard!
