First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to 105 Santa Fe Indian school graduates plus a crowd of 3000 at the in a commencement address where she urged the graduates to remember their tribal history and carry it with them proudly. She said “you are the next generation of leaders in your communities.” The First Lady’s speech is part of the Generation Indigenous Initiative from the Obama Administration aimed at removing "barriers to success" for Native American youth, who the White House says make up the nation's "most vulnerable population."

Before the speech I spoke to audience members, friends, students and family members about their thoughts and reactions of the First Lady of the United States addressing their community.
