Indigenous Responses/Sovereignty

Global Perspective: Indigenous Responses to COVID-19 to Protect Communities and Sovereignty

Potential questions for Tribal officials and technical experts: 

  • Should Tribes develop their own stockpiles or partner with companies who manufacture PPE?
  • What were the best outreach/educational tools used in the community?
  • What safety measures did your Tribe implement and how were they successful – stay at home; provision of supplies and food; closing reservation roads; establishment of a central command center to coordinate emergency preparedness and response activities, etc.?
  • Other experiences?

*Note: these are intended to provide guidance. Additional topics are welcome.
