All Relations United Executive Director Robert Horse grew up facing many of the issues and challenges that Native youth are facing today.
He successfully hosted and led events to support youth in South Dakota in 2018. Under his guidance and leadership, All Relations United is expanding its work to communities in New Mexico and around the country to reach as many kids as we can and help to save the future for this next generation.
We believe that by providing the necessary support especially involving our communities and creating mentorship programs for at risk youth, we can slow if not altogether stop the current pipeline of school to prison. The future of our youth should not be prison cells.
Promoting Unity Among All Native and Non-Native Prisoners
Supporting Native Prison Circles with
culture, spiriturality, sobriety and ceremonies.
Native American Prisoner Caucus also supports those who are struggling to follow the "Red Road," and to eventurally reintegrate back into their communities and to build successful lives.
NAPCUS supports cultural activites and traditional teachings within the prisons which provide Native inmates with a sense of identity, contributing to successful reentry back into their communities. In our Indigenous core system, punishment for a crime is healing for everyone.
All Relations United sponsors Fam First Fathers Against Meth. We support an addiction-free world for all youth and peoples.
All Relations United believes that all peoples, native and non-native deserve to have the support and addiction-free communities that they need to create successful lives.
Addiction is driving incarceration rates and becoming intergenerational. The future homes of our youth and people should not be prison cells.
Our ancestors struggled to create a good world for this generation. Let us continue on this path to create better for future generations

Youth are still developing, so as a result society treats kids and adults differently in several contexts, such as driving and serving in the military. Yet in the criminal justice system, children are treated as adults.
We are working to dismantle the school to prison pipeline as well as supporting an end to excessive sentences and extreme punishments. It is important to protecting young people in the juvenile justice system.
All Relations United is working to preserve and revitalize Native languages. Each language is symbolic of the culture from which it originated. Many words and expressions cannot be translated. Preserving language is preserving the unique expression of a people and a way of life.
