The novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has been disrupting society and Indigenous communities.
Indian Country Today has been reporting on it for the last month. The Seattle Times has been on top of it since COVID-19 started in Seattle in the United States. The novel coronavirus has also been affecting First Nations in Canada.
This is a roundtable with Indian Country Today's Executive Producer Patty Talahongva and Washington Editor Jourdan Bennett-Begaye joined by The Seattle Times Investigative Reporter Mary Hudetz and Melissa Ridgen, host and producer for the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN).
