There is a lot of information floating around the Internet (a lot of jiníí) about Covid-19. This page lists a few helpful websites in sorting that information.
Of course, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control (the CDC) for the most up-to-date information on Covid-19.
The Tribal Law and Policy Institute has put together a helpful list of websites from National Native Organizations that have Covid specific resources.
There is also a lot of information and moving parts regarding Congressional funding to support tribes during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Tribal Law and Policy Institute has compiled a list of resources on this topic.
The Urban Indian Health Institute has also gathered resources for tribes and urban Indian organizations and communities about the Covid outbreak.
National Indian Health Board put together an online Covid-19 Tribal Resource Center.
The National Urban Indian Family Coalition released a report on the impacts of Covid-19 on Urban Indian and Alaska Native Organizations.
Other Links and Resources
I think Covid-19 has raised the issue of how to talk about it. How do we talk about everything – handwashing, social distancing, sickness, and resources – within our communities? How do we talk about being resilient? So this section is devoted to a few links of that sort. I hope this list keeps growing.
