This meta-ethnography examines qualitative research done on or with Native American youth. In an effort to counter the colonized narratives that are prevalent in today’s system, this chapter includes studies that gave way to Native youth voice and agency. This research centers Native youth’s voices to help us understand Native youth identity, their experiences in and out of school, and ways we can support them. The five articles that are a part of this meta-ethnography took very different views on the development of Native American youth identity. However, three key aspects emerged as essential to the identity development of Native youth: identity: language, culture and adult-youth relationships.
