The Bishop Paiute Reservation has a new place for all youths, teens and young adults to “wünüt” or “stand up” – be creative, constructive and learn skills they will take with them for the rest for their lives.
The WünüT Novi Youth Media Arts and Infoshop was born out of the loss of young people to violence and drugs and alcohol. Still in its infancy, the program is seeking more volunteers and donations that will allow the center to stay open longer and offer more to the community.
