NATIVE COVID-19 RESPONSE

 Art By Jim Yellow Hawk 

Antinanco Earth Arts School and PAZA, Tree of Life, two grassroots non-profit organizations join forces to raise immediate funds for Native American Communities as the COVID-19 pandemic becomes a serious threat.  The reservations that will receive the Native COVID-19 response include Crow Creek, Lower Brule and Cheyenne River Sioux in South Dakota, as well as the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, where the outbreak is rapidly spreading due to a lack of access to water. 

The Native COVID Response Campaign is a public campaign that we have launched across social media to help Native American communities get through this pandemic. Our goal is to create public awareness about what is happening with our Native Nations, especially during this time of crisis, and to let the Native peoples know that we are eager to help.

 

“Our Native brothers and sisters living on the reservations are part of the high-risk population who are in immediate danger from the coronavirus, “commented Delwin Fiddler, an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Executive Director of PAZA, Tree of Life, a non-profit dedicated to the revival and preservation of Native American culture.  “Due to the reservations’ poor living conditions, remote proximity to medical facilities, limited food, and scarce medical and preventative resources, the health of our people, especially our elders and children, is at enormous risk of infection and possible death.”

The Navajo and Hopi tribes in Arizona face a more critical situation as there are no sewer lines or electricity on the reservation, which means there is no running water.  There have been over 1,000 reported cases so far due to the inability to wash hands on regular basis

 

Native Hope, a South Dakota based non-profit has joined in this collaborative effort to help get donations to the reservations in a timely manner. 

The first round of monetary and item donations totaling $10,000 is going to the reservations on May 18th.  This effort was made possible with the help of the Taubert Memorial Foundation, whose mission focuses on addressing health issues through better food choices and holistic medicines.
