Indigenous – Weekly COVID-19 Bulletin

Isadore Day CEO, Bimaadzwin

Welcome to the tenth edition of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples. Every week, Bimaadzwin will post stories and facts that contain basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic.

With the arrival of warmer weather, many of us are going for long walks, heading out on the land, hunting, fishing, and gathering the first edible plants of spring. If you are outside with people who are not household family members, please wear a mask and maintain at least six feet distance. As always, please respect the lock-down orders in your communities.

The simplest message is: “Stay at home. Stay in your backyard.” We are all in this together. Everyone must stay informed in order to stay safe. That is our central goal and commitment to this publication. Please click on the link below for this week’s presentation:

We look forward to your feedback, ideas, and shared information that we can help send across to First Nations across Turtle Island. We are working with various partners to ensure that the information that is being conveyed is in support of First Nations as they activate Pandemic Plans and work toward reconstituting First Nation communities once the transmission of COVID19 is no longer a threat to human health.

Please contact us at hpelky@bimaadzwin.ca / 1-705-987-2505. Working together, we can, and will make it through this and be stronger as Indigenous People, families, communities, and nations.

In Health, Healing and Nationhood,

Isadore Day, Wiindawtegowinini
