COVID-19 in Indian Country
“Since last fall, NCUIH and Native American LifeLines have pushed for the inclusion of the 65,000 Natives in the DMV as Natives are dying from COVID-19 at the highest rates worldwide,” said NCUIH CEO Francys Crevier.

The National Council of Urban Indian Health and Native American LifeLines are pleased to announce COVID-19 vaccinations for urban Indians in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan area.

All states, jurisdictions and territories in the U.S. must collect demographic data on racial disparities and the coronavirus, said Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland), the House Majority Leader.

The coronavirus is impacting American Indians and Alaska Natives all over the country, whether they live in reservation, rural or urban settings.

House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) spoke on the House Floor on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
