Call for Indigenous Peoples to Share Their Story

CHA-NICOA-share your story

Our partners at the National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) have put out a call for Indigenous peoples to share their story. Each person has a powerful story to share. And NICOA is looking for American Indian and Alaska Native elders to speak about the experiences that have made them who they are today.

Stories can be written or you can schedule a Zoom interview. NICOA encourages you to share any story or stories you choose. It could be about someone who has inspired you or touched your life or you can write about yourself, your family, your culture, tribe, upbringing, etc. NICOA’s website has a whole list of good sample questions to get you started.

If you know of Indigenous elders in your community, please share this opportunity with them and help spread the word. These stories can and will inspire others.
