BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission has released an important video urging North Dakota tribal citizens to do their part to stop the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus.

In a short message in an email, the Commission writes:

Hello Relatives,

We know that some of our People are not taking the coronavirus seriously. It's here in North Dakota. It threatens all of us. North Dakota Tribal Leaders are very concerned.

Stay Home.  Stay Connected.  Stay Healthy.

The deadly novel coronavirus is spreading rapidly in Indian Country. The confirmed cases have now surpassed 1,000 cases throughout Indian Country.

This May, we are highlighting our coverage of Indian boarding schools and their generational impact on Native families and Native communities. Giving survivors of boarding schools and their descendants the opportunity to share their stories is an important step toward healing — not just because they are speaking, but because they are being heard. Their stories must be heard. Help our efforts to make sure Native stories and Native voices are heard in 2024. Please consider a recurring donation to help fund our ongoing coverage of Indian boarding schools. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous-centered journalism. Thank you.
