Bonus Episode: All Our (Socially Distanced) Relations

This bonus episode explores the impacts of Covid-19 in tribal communities. Even though tribal nations are most at risk, Indigenous voices have been widely left out of mainstream news coverage. Nationally, health experts and tribal leaders are sounding the alarm that Native Americans are particularly vulnerable to the spread of Covid-19. During this time of crisis, it is critically important to hear from national leadership. Listen in to hear conversation between Matika and New Mexico’s First District US Congresswoman, Deb Haaland (Laguna Pueblo); Lieutenant Governor of Minnesota, Peggy Flanagan (White Earth Band of Ojibwe); President of The National Congress of The American Indian, Fawn Sharp (Quinalt); Director of Urban Indian Health Institute, Abigail Echo-Hawk (Pawnee); President & CEO of Black Hills Center for American Indian Health, Dr. Jeff Henderson (Cheyenne River Sioux);  Indigenous Environment Network Organizer, Dallas Goldtooth (Mdewakanton Dakota and Dine); Nutritionist Valerie Segrest (Muckleshoot); Ethnobotanist Linda Black Elk (Catawba); and Medical Doctors Dr. Edi Chu and Dr. David Price.  Each speaks to crisis from their own perspective and offers insight. +++This work was supported by the National Geographic Society’s Emergency Fund for Journalists.
