Seattle CityClub is teaming up with Tribal leaders this month for their latest Civic Boot Camp series.

Ivy Pete is a Native American high schooler from Spokane who helped write House Bill 1356 which would prohibit the use of inappropriate Indian names, symbols, or images as public school mascots.

Pete and Whitney Keyes, Seattle CityClub Executive Director, join New Day NW to talk about the work they are doing together.
