In an effort to encourage young people to get involved in the democratic process the Oneida Indian Nation provided area schools with DVD’s on the U.S. Constitution and access to an Interactive Web site on polling.
The program, which was implemented by the Committee for Citizen Awareness, a non-partisan group, focuses on civic education for area youths and Native American history. Officials with the program say the DVD titled “We the People…The U.S. Constitution and You” was provided free of charge to all high schools, community colleges and public libraries in the 24th Congressional District.
Oneida Nation Representative and CEO, Ray Halbritter said, “At the Oneida Nation, we believe it is important for all young people to know their constitutional rights and understand how the U.S. Constitution and American law uniquely impact American Indian people. That’s why we are excited to bring this program to our local area for the benefit of all the young people in Central New York schools.”
The educational program is also sponsored by former Secretary of State, Colin Powell and CBS journalist Bob Schieffer. According to the release the educational DVD features Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, daughter of President John F. Kennedy and Congressman Tom Cole, the only tribal Member of Congress. The interactive Web site features a monthly youth opinion poll, which was developed with assistance from George Gallup, Jr. More information can be found at www.citizenawareness.org.
