About the Event:
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 Jr. 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 that tribal leaders have to respond and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and we have scheduled this regional online convening to gather tribal leader input in a town hall like setting. We sincerely hope you can attend.
During this meeting, tribal leaders will be asked to:
1. Share the resources they require to address immediate COVID-19 relief and recovery;
2. The status of vaccine distribution within their tribal nation; and
3. Other related items in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and new administration.
