Native News Online is hosting a Native-centered live stream on Zoom via Facebook Live on February 25. The program is designed to create vaccination awareness and vaccine hesitancy in Indian Country. 

The one-hour forum, Covid-19 Vaccinations in Indian Country, will feature health experts, including Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr.,  Dr. Melvina McCabe (Diné), retired professor and researcher at University of New Mexico Medical School and Stacy A. Bohlen (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians), CEO, National Indian Health Board.

As with the rest of the country, relief is needed. Much hope for relief exists because of vaccines that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

However, there is a question of how hesitant American Indians will be to take the vaccine. Join us for this informative and timely one-hour forum.

Covid-19 Vaccinations in Indian Country will be co-hosted by Publisher Levi Rickert (Potawatomi) and Managing Editor Kyle Edwards (Anishinaabe).

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
