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:
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.
