Before we move into November, this weekend many in Indian Country will celebrate Halloween with the children and grandchildren. Remember we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Safe health practices should be taken to protect you, your famiy and community.
As an alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating, public health officials recommend outdoor trunk-or-treating where vehicles are spaced out to ensure attendees maintain social distancing of at least six-feet, foot traffic markings and directions are used, and individually packaged “treats” are distributed at the end of the event to minimize close contact between organizers and attendees.
November 1 is the kickoff for the 26th Annual Red Nation International Film Festival will run the entire month.. See Native News Online's newly published interview with Joanelle Romero, founder and director of the Red Nation International Film Festival.
November will be a busy month for Native Americans because November is Native American Heritage Month. Native News Online will publish on Monday a list of events that will occur in during the month to celebrate the Indigenous people of the United States.
Until then, please have a safe weekend.
