Native Revision = A new vision for Native American youth
Native ReVision is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Dallas, TX. We utilize competitive sport to support and challenge Native American student-athletes. We identify and recognize their value and accomplishments while revealing a path to self-reliance and success through trust, teamwork, mentoring, education, and relationship building.
Our Native American youth are in trouble. They are dropping out of school at rates higher than any other U.S. ethnic or racial group – as much as twice the national average. They are also more than twice as likely to become crime victims, and they face shockingly high rates of obesity, diabetes, and substance abuse. Even more disturbing are the extremely high death rates among our Native American youth – from all of the above plus suicide! Clearly, something needs to be done, and at Native ReVision, we are doing something about these very serious problems. Through individual mentoring, organized athletic programs like the 2014 Native All-Star Football Classic, and other annual events we’re making a difference in these young peoples’ lives!
