COVID-19 Resources for Indian Country

The Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development is curating response examples and resources

As the country responds to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the task before tribal nations is complicated by many unknowns. The Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development recognizes the challenges native nations are up against and wants to help. The Harvard Project team is monitoring tribal governments’ response to the crisis. Across Indian Country, they are witnessing tribal leaders and national Native organizations taking action to protect and position Native nations to see a better tomorrow. These examples and many more make up the contents of a new COVID-19 Resources for Indian Country toolbox.

The Project has pulled together resources that demonstrate ways to build governance capacity, illustrate best practices by tribes, provide trusted information about the virus itself, and supply tribal health ordinances intended to meet your immediate needs. Native nation-building begins with strong governance, and we hope the examples in this toolbox spark ideas for action that strengthens your community.
