On Thursday July 25th the Klamath Tribes Youth Council election was held at the 3rd Annual Klamath Tribes Youth Summit in Klamath Falls, OR.  These 12 young people were nominated and elected by a delegation of their peers to represent Klamath Tribal Youth in matters concerning them for the next year.  The new officers attended an orientation immediately following their election, learning about the purpose of tribal youth councils, getting orientated with the Constitution & By-Laws of the Klamath Tribes Youth Council, and working on some community asset mapping to identify strengths and areas of improvement in the tribal communities that they represent.

The Youth Council will be sworn in by a tribal council officer during their annual swearing-in ceremony, date, time and location TBA.
