Strategic Investments of One-Time Funds for Tribal Governments
The disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 virus on Native American peoples has amplified educational and health care inequities that have persisted for Native peoples throughout the United States resulting from federal policies that disrupted and attempted to erase Indigenous educational systems, family structures, and languages.
