The prognosis for a lingering pandemic

Coming up we'll fill you in on the COVID-19 variants and booster shots. Plus, more on the Seminole Tribe's collaboration with Disney's Epcot Center

Seneca Nation citizen Dean Seneca joins ICT's newscast with an update on COVID-19 vaccines, variants and the prognosis for the pandemic. He’s the chief executive officer of Seneca Scientific Solutions Plus. 

The 2018 partnership between the Seminole Tribe and Disney’s Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida is a success. Joining us with more about this well-received joint venture is Cherokee citizen Sandra Hale Schulman. She’s a freelance journalist and wrote about this collaboration for Indian Country Today. 

A slice of our Indigenous world:

  • The Alaska Federationleaders are encouraging the public to comment on a proposed mining project. 
  • The last piece of steel is in place for a new casino resort being built by the Wilton Rancheria in northern California. 
  • It is hard to explain how exciting the sport of Indian Relay is. It's a combination of teamwork, horsemanship, and as Shirley Sneve reports ... swagger.

Thank you for watching!
