SNAG Weekly Workshops Begin Tuesday Sept 27th



Seventh Native American Generation (SNAG) was established in 2002 to teach Native Youth to amplify their voice by making their own media. In the last 10 years, SNAG has published seven full color magazines, trained hundreds of youth, hosted packed annual community arts events, and provided free weekly workshops in SF for Native Youth to learn skills in graphic design, layout, photography, film, fine art and writing.

This year, our weekly workshops will be hosted in collaboration with PODER at 474 Valencia St, Suite #125 in San Francisco every Tuesday 4:30-7pm. Our calendar year begins Tuesday Sept. 27th. Youth Aged 12-18 are invited to participate. This Fall/Winter Youth participants will produce and layout the 8th print edition of SNAG Magazine, participate in a camp out on Alcatraz Island, and some will be selected to attend the Bioneers conference in Marin. The SNAG staff is excited to offer their skills in media training, and we look forward to another fun year of media making!

Urban/Rez Native Foods Exchange Program






As part of our Urban/Rez Native Foods Exchange (Funding for Traditional Food Economies) program, youth are learning to grow edible plants and vegetables at the Secret Garden, an urban community garden in the Mission District of San Francisco. The program is funded by Honor the Earth's Resilience in Indigenous Communities Initiative and we are conducting it in partnership with the Friendship House and PODER. As part of the program, we took the youth up north to Ya-Ka-Ama in Forestville for a camping/gardening/cultural trip.

These are some images they took.
