I had the pleasure of working with the youth of Seventh Native American Generation, SNAG Magazine, for 5 years. I taught the youth media skills and helped them to document their work in videos and photography. While working with SNAG youth I had the chance to do joint workshops with PODER SF, Youth MOJO at the Chinese Progressive Association, and the youth of the Friendship House SF. I worked closely with SNAG Magazine founders Ras K’dee and Shadi Rahimi on many interesting projects like editing their footage taking a Native American delegation to Palestine, documenting youth dancers at community powows, and helping the youth make short horror film Sage Smoke. I am still in contact with some of the SNAG youth and it has been a pleasure to watch them grow up.
