Turtle Mountain Community High School | Belcourt, ND

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

Alexis Davis, a member of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa tribe in North Dakota, calls upon the next president to help preserve her tribe’s culture and land by protecting them from energy development.
