SANTA FE (AP) – First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver the high school commencement address to Santa Fe Indian School.

The White House announced Monday that Obama will address the school on May 26 as part of the White House Generation Indigenous Initiative.

The initiative works to improve the lives of American Indian youth by promoting a national dialogue and programs to train the next generation of leaders.

Last year, the First Lady addressed the White House Tribal Youth Gathering in Washington, D.C.

The Santa Fe Indian School currently is owned and operated by the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico.
