Dispatch from the Frontlines: COVID-19 and Indigenous Communities – Tele-Town Hall Recording

Facebook Live Recording of a 5/20/20 tele-townhall with the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center and the Native Organizers Alliance for a on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting Tribal Nations and indigenous people in the US. Doctors without Borders announced its first-ever mission to the United States, helping the hard-hit Navajo Nation fight COVID-19. And the governor of South Dakota threatened to sue Sioux leaders in an attempt to remove tribal COVID-19 checkpoints. Tribal governments haven’t received one penny of the $8 billion allocated by the CARES Act. These broken promises are deadly.
