The Indigenous Youth Delegation to Palestine is a project of a collective of grassroots groups in the U.S. and Palestine. We are committed to connecting Native and immigrant youth in the U.S with youth in Palestine by creating forums for us to reflect together and bridge our struggles. This first-ever cross-continental exchange is an opportunity for youth to learn first hand from each other by sharing tools of empowerment and strategies for survival and resistance.
Our journey to Palestine is part of an on-going process of connecting the shared experiences of Indigenous peoples across the world. We are working on a full-length documentary about the trip that YOU can help support! Help us produce our film! With the footage, images, and music we have been creating and collecting as we travel through Palestine, we are producing our own film as a tool for our ongoing education and organizing. We need your help to make it happen and make it quality. We need funds for translation, sound and color correction, graphics, dvd production, and distribution.

If you would rather donate to the documentary effort through Network for Good, the link for that is also on the SNAG site. Other ways:
- Organize or help promote a Report Back! We are committed to use multimedia for organizing and education back home and we need your help! Invite us to come into your classrooms, youth groups, and homes. We hope that each report back can also be a fundraiser so that we can begin immediately collecting the funds we need to bring a delegation of youth from our partner organizations in Palestine to visit and work with us on our reservations and in our communities here in the U.S.
- Help distribute SNAG Magazine! The next issue of SNAG Magazine is dedicated entirely to the images, art, and writing that the Native, Xicana, and Palestinian youth are creating. The issue will be published in three languages- Arabic, English, and Spanish! If you can use this as a tool in your classrooms, community organizations, libraries, or youth groups, contact us to pre-order copies: firstname.lastname@example.org
