Earlier this week, the Northern Arapaho Tribe released a video announcement about a COVID-19 Response Plan.
A declaration was also shared today:
Northern Arapaho Community,
Along with our Ceremonial Elders, the Northern Arapaho Business Council (“NABC”) declares Wednesday, March 18th, as a Day of Prayer for our people. Please pray for our health, protection, strength, and for guidance as we all work together to combat the spread of Coronavirus in our community. Please also pray for our elders, our vulnerable, and our wonderful Clinic staff that are working around the clock to serve our community. The NABC would like to assure you all that we are taking this crisis seriously, Wind River Cares and the Tribal Government have a plan in place and we working to prevent the local spread as best as we can. This is not a time to panic, but this is a time to take all precautions to protect our community. We are Arapaho and our traditional way of life will protect us as we help ourselves. Please join us in a Day of Prayer for our people.
