It provides opportunities for students to develop and strengthen their leadership skills through interaction with tribal leaders, contemporary and leadership focused workshops, and fellowship with other Native students. A research study was designed to assess the impact of ONASHE on the development of leadership skills among student attendees of the conference. Three major themes emerged regarding Native student leadership development, including developing a positive self-image, community building, and Native role models.
