Seeking teens interested in Oneida language, culture, music, and doing good in the community. The Ka>nithotiy^sa Latiwy<t#htas Ukwehuwehn#ha (KLU) Summer Program is for teens, ages 14-17 years old.

The KLU program runs June 24th to August 23rd, 2019. The anticipated time commitment is 80 hours, schedules are to be determined. This program may also count towards community service hours for high school requirements. There may be financial incentives based upon availability of funds, participation hours, and participants' attitudes, more information will be provided at Orientation Meeting.
KLU offers a great way to learn about our community, tribal departments, resources, environment, our culture and people. You will meet youth from other schools and build connections with them and other Oneida community members while you learn. Each week, teens will receive a schedule of classes, practices, expectations to meet and community work. All participants must take part in the summer Music from Our Culture Camp, July 15th-August 4th and/or Theatre Projects, July 22nd-25th, 2019.
KLU started in 2015 to give youth more exposure to language and culture and leadership expanding from what they learn within the Music from Our Culture (MOC) program. Since then, the Oneida Nation Arts Program has expanded it into the KLU Summer Program for teenage youth.
