COVID-19 Regional Tribal Town Hall Convenings

In December 2020, NCAI President Fawn Sharp created the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Task Force (Task Force) to address: (1) tribal COVID-19 relief needs; (2) tribal COVID-19 recovery needs; and (3) the chronic conditions that created the public health and economic circumstances making Tribal Nations and citizens vulnerable to this crisis. This Task Force is chaired by Chairman Larry Wright of the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska. 

It is important that the Task Force and its members hear from all Tribal Nations on how COVID-19 has impacted their communities and the needs tribal leaders have to respond and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, NCAI and partner organizations have scheduled the following regional online convenings to gather tribal leader input in a town hall setting. During these meetings, tribal leaders will be asked to share the resources they require to address immediate COVID-19 relief and recovery; the status of vaccine distribution within their Tribal Nation; and other related items in response of the COVID-19 pandemic and new administration. 

We encourage tribal leaders to sign up for their respected regional convening listed below. Additional details will be released soon.
