The Kiikaapoaa (Kickapoo) Tribe in Kansas is a federally recognized sovereign Indian Tribe that consists of more than 1,600 enrolled members with approximately half residing on the Kickapoo Nation Reservation in rural Brown County, Kansas. The Mission of the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas is to enhance the quality of life for the tribe, its members, and its community while preserving its culture and retaining its right to self-governance by protecting tribal sovereignty and assets. It is because of this strong commitment to improving life for the tribe that the KTIK is dedicated to addressing intergenerational mental health, substance abuse, and trauma. By expanding the efforts of the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas Native Connections program, we will: 1) Strengthen a system of behavioral health and wellness care for Kickapoo youth and young adults; 2) Improve availability and accessibility of behavioral health and wellness programs for youth and young adults in the Kickapoo community; and 3) Engage community leaders and members, including youth and young adults, in building strong connections to promote Kickapoo culture and tradition. We aim for our youth, as critical members of our intergenerational community circle, to have a safe and caring space to make friends, learn new skills, connect with our culture and language, and develop healthy, happy, thriving futures. Our Native Connections program will increase opportunities for growth and access to community leadership for its youth by engaging in community-based outreach that fosters stronger family relationships, building safe and substance-free spaces for youth to come together, and by educating youth on healthy and traditional practices for increased mental wellbeing. Together our community and partners will realize a holistic vision of healthy, happy, thriving adolescents, for they are the future leaders of our Tribe.
