"You're listening to native America calling. I'm Sean spruce. Today we are talking about meat processing in native America, with about a $1 billion allocated to supporting smaller local meat producers. We could start seeing more tribally processed meat. Have you been impacted by slowdowns and meat distribution? Do you enjoy a good locally sourced ribeye? Join our discussion by calling one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's also 109 9 native. I'd like to now bring in Chris roper, who is speaking with us from south central Missouri. He is one of the directors of regional technical assistance for the flower hill institute. Chris, great to have you on the show. Thank you, and I'm glad to be here and look forward to participating in our conversation today. Absolutely. And tell me, what are you hearing from native ranchers about this exciting new program, the meat and poultry processing capacity program? Are they excited? Oh, absolutely. There's so many new programs coming out and that have came out. It's truly hard to keep up with all of them. And that makes it more exciting for us to have our roots back with the tribes and have all of our contacts that we've had over the last several years and to have the great relationships through flower hill. And we're able to share information with tribes all across the country. And it's truly amazing to be able to assist groups through the process, make sure they're aware of the new programs when they come out. Answer questions when they come up about the grants or even particular grants about our particular questions about how to fill out the grants or what has to be included in a grant or we try to help through operations through the development of the facilities and we really try to be a one stop turnkey resource for everyone to call upon and use our history and our knowledge to help tribes develop these new facilities. Okay. And before we went to break, I mentioned I just want to make sure that information is correct..

"Down and have to deal with that type of situation. It really is really is. Yeah, absolutely. And Alan, you know, in addition to, I mean, we're talking about theft a lot today, but that's not the only risk that we face with regard to regalia and these other cultural items. And as a homeowner myself, one of my biggest fears is water damage. And I'm curious, what about things like that? Water damage, other acts of nature are those going to be covered if we have our regalia or items damaged, will that be covered by most homeowners or runners policies? Yeah, most HO three policies are going to have what's called perils. And that's a funny word for an insured to hear peril. But the word peril comes from fire, wind and hell. Water damage like you mentioned, a freeze claim of burst, vandalism, theft is the most common peril that people quickly associate with, but any of these perils like this if they were to sustain damage to your coverage fee, which is your personal content. Let's use fire for just an example and I'll come back to water. You had a kitchen fire. And it burned up some of your personal contents. It refrigerated your stove, your microwave. Some of your personal goals and that type of stuff. All of that comes into your content of your policy. And yes, it would be covered. We would replace those. You do something similar like a staff loss. But you make an inventory, and that's why I go back to, hey, just taking some pictures in these rooms would be very helpful for you to say, oh, I have this. I have this and this. The only tricky thing with the water loss is you just want to make sure that coverage is going to trigger for whatever the water incident occurred. Let me give you an example. Let's say we have to go to a break right now. So I'm going to go ahead and let you finish more information on water damage because I know that can be a little bit tricky. So we're going to take a break, but anybody with any questions or comments really great discussion learning about how to protect valuables, cultural possessions, give us a call, one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8.

"I think it's highly variable here at a and MC we travel in patients from all over the state. So really have to keep track of different regions have different implementation of mitigation measures, whether testing is required in order to return to their home community and have a negative test or time periods in the hub communities prior to going to the villages. So I think there's a lot of variability across Alaska on the measures that have been taken to protect the communities. Like dean was noting, I think in unique and tribal health and many of the areas tribal health did the contact tracing and are still doing result notification. So I think we've been much more active in that area. As well as when there are outbreaks testing everyone in the village in an isolated community like that can do testing and contact tracing at a entire community level, which I think has been beneficial. And that activity is still ongoing. Similar to nationally, I think a lot of the mitigation measures related to masking and spacing and gathering have been relaxed in many communities now. But they're still following it closely. And I think depended on the local conditions in that community that may change and I think they've changed relatively frequently. So unlike kind of at a national level, the desire to change quickly has been less embraced, but I think a lot of local communities are really taking their local conditions into play and reimplementing those measures when they need to in the case counts go up. Well, bob, you mentioned Alaska is such a large state and remote isolated community. So I'm curious to know if that creates some unique challenges with regard to doing some of this tracking in contact tracing that might be different than other parts of the country and I'm going to go ahead and we're going to have to take a break here in just a short 30 seconds or so, but when we get back from break, I'm going to have you respond to just some of those unique challenges that Alaska faces with regard to some of this tracking and contact tracing of the virus. And folks, please, if you've got a question or a comment for our show today, please reach out one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. We've got four guests on today and they're giving us some really good information really helpful insights in terms of where we are at right now in the COVID-19 pandemic. So please give us a call now. As you know, once the show really gets moving along and callers start calling it, it's hard to get your call on the air. So if you call now, we do have our lines are open.

"Your two did in native America calling, I'm Sean spruce. We're talking about uranium mining cleanup on the Navajo Nation, and we want to hear what you think. Still time to call one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's one 809 9 native. Let's bring Roy into our conversation now and Roy before break rose talked a little bit about the cleanup process for some of this waste and I think that's really helpful because I don't think that the average person necessarily understands what it takes to clean up an abandoned mind. I think we might think of it like filling a hole with rocks and soil, but I'm thinking it's a lot more complicated than that. So could you give us a little bit more detail on what it takes to actually clean up some of this stuff? Sure. So one thing we always have to understand that there is no silver bullet for abundant mind cleanup. So every site is unique and we have to first understand the geology, then we have to understand the impacts that have abandoned mine is having on human health and the environmental health. So we are talking about soil water air. So for example, from our nations around the uranium mines, right now, the water is contaminated, the soil.

"About the violent words and actions that they hold and the assumptions and stereotypes underlying them. So in my eyes, it just emboldened them. And actually now that we have online spaces to be able to allow those sorts of thoughts and words to proliferate in ways that people are on accountable for. It just that sort of hatred, particularly in online spaces, just took off. Which, of course, then indigenous people are responsive to and are advocating and honoring ourselves. And so I do definitely think that would amplify what was already preexisting tension, racial tensions in those spaces. I'm interested also indigenous activism, just overall, I mean, First Nations people are spread out so widely throughout Canada, so many different First Nations groups and communities. What has been the response from other First Nations people outside of that region? I think people outside of this outside of the Prairie region have expressed shock discussed. They're appalled that something that sort of quote unquote. Justice system can be allowed to unfold in such an explicit and direct miscarriage of justice. That someone can literally admit to shooting a young indigenous man and be found not guilty, largely because of the narratives in sentiments that circulate in those spaces. So I'm situated out in BC and when I teach about this and tell students about the death of Colton and the trial of Gerald Stanley. They're in utter disbelief, you know? Well, folks, we have to take another break. This is native America calling that you're listening to.

"Native voice one the Native American radio network. This is Native American calling. I'm Sean spruce. Slavery is one of the most egregious episodes in America's history. And indigenous people were among both the oppressed and oppressors before and after, contact with European settlers. How slavery affected Native Americans is poorly documented. But some historians are working to gain a better understanding. It's clear that spanner settlers enslaved members of America's indigenous populations well before the African slave trade. And it wasn't long before it.

"This is native America calling. I'm Monica Brain. Scammers will take any opportunity to bilk you out of your money or personal information. Currently they're using the Kovic global pandemic as a way to prey on fears about the uncertainty with the virus and economic issues around the pandemic. Here's one example of a Robo call. Some folks are getting. The Corona virus has caused the. Us declared a national emergency. The Families First Corona Virus Response Act has made corona virus testing more accessible immediately. If you want to receive a free testing kit delivered overnight to your home press one if you do not want your free testing press to do to be clear you cannot take a corona virus test at home.

You may be able to benefit from updated modification in refinance programs. Today we're going to go through a list of scams that are out there and give you tips for avoiding scams altogether. And we'd like to hear from you. Have you been getting calls about in nineteen? Do they involve cures or personal requests for personal information to get your relief? Check call us right now and share your experience you can be an anonymous of the number is eight hundred nine six two eight four eight once again. Is Sean Spruce? He's the programs consultant.

I'm I'm excited to talk about this topic today. Even though it it's a little tricky you know because it involves people who are committing crimes and really taking advantage of Sometimes unsuspecting folks so Have you recently wrote about A scam in your doctor per cap column that involved the Corona Virus. Tell us about it. Yeah absolutely so I got a an email from a woman End into the country and she had received a phone call very late at night from somebody who claim to be her niece and then he said I'm really sick I mean hospital and I've racked up these huge bills because of Cova nineteen. I'm infected and I need help paying the bills and this woman is elderly and she was at home and you know she was again. It was late at night. She wasn't quite isn't allergic. She could have been and she just but it didn't sound quite right so I'm quite like her these even though the woman identified herself as her knees with the right name and everything. Fortunately her nephew was also home and he grabbed the phone and he very quickly could tell that this was a scam. This was not actual niece. It was basically what we call grandparents scam. Where Somebody Will Foam Cau- call it older person and pretend to be a grandchild or niece or nephew and say they're in some kind of trouble and usually it's some kind of trouble with the law or something like that This case this person claim to be sick with covert nineteen and needed help paying medical bills. So fortunately they hung up the phone and that was the end of it but she she sent me an email just to let me know what was going on. And this was something that was headed occurred in her with her personal life and You know these kind of things just always bring out. The worst. In people. Natural disasters are hurricanes earthquakes tornadoes forest fires. You know every time. One of these huge natural disasters or crises erupts. There's always some bad actors scammers fraudsters that look to take advantage and this was an example of that fortunately she wasn't victimized but scary that people will approach somebody or contact. Somebody call somebody like with that kind of a sinister plot to defraud them or steal from them. Yeah I know especially late at night and I I know I would be all confused and take me a minute to realize whether or not I was dreaming or something like that I wonder for that out there to our listeners. Have you ever experienced something like this? Has Someone called and pretended to be your family member and asked You for help And then it turned out that they weren't at all Give us a call and share. The number is one eight hundred nine six two eight four eight vessels one eight hundred nine nine native. I want to add another voice to the conversation. We've got Chuck Harwood on the line. He's the regional director of the Federal Trade Commission for the Northwest Region. Hey there chuck. I'm GONNA so are you. Seeing lots of reports of an increase in scams are the scammers. They're just taking their regular catalogue of Scams and just adding cove in nineteen to it and Is that increasing the answer. To all requested yes That's exactly what's happening. We're seeing lots of reports of scams about liberate. Thousands of reports are scams which in which Cova Nineteen Corona virus being referred to. They are taking their usual catalogue of scams and just tacking on corona virus or Cova nineteen to the for example. The one Sean talked about it they classic grandparent or family. Birds Scam that we've been hearing about for years sometimes traffic accidents or something like that now. They're saying Rovers So Yeah we've seen both. Wow that's That's upsetting to hear so Exactly how okay. Let's talk a little bit more about how this actually works with the grandparent. Scam for example. So you know Sean was saying she was saying she was in the hospital and she needed money if they had continued that conversation. What would happen next chuck? Almost certainly they would have asked for money to be sent They would have said that they need the money immediately. needs to be perfectly overnight faster that the victim can be convinced to get the money in the mail or more likely. Frankly Sent through wire Western Union or these days. They even use know gift cards to send money. like Amazon itunes gift cards That's the way they want to do it. And as soon as the money has sent it disappears and doing impossible to reverse the payment And tumors out the money. It is extraordinarily. You'd think it can't work but extraordinarily common. How often people fall for the scam and my time said one more thing about the scam described in point of an important point important Element in fighting. These scams net is consulting with your friends and neighbors family The example that Sean describe was prevented because the woman who received the call had a family member. She could consult with And that's that's really critical. Find is a lot of people who avoid scams do so because they talk to friends and family members of course in the middle of lockdowns at viruses increasingly hard to do so. They can't further like to fall victim to these games. I had this conversation with my dad. Who's in his late seventies and I told him if somebody calls saying there me and they need money for the emergency room hospital or anything like that or I'm in jail. Just leave. Just tell them now. You can stay there and we'll just go ahead and because that's not gonNA happen. I'M NOT GONNA call you that way. You know our tell them. Oh call your sister and she'll take care of it Which I think is you know I mean I. It seems weird to have a a scam plan. Sean have you talked to folks about that like having conversations with your family members in advance as a preventative measure. Not so much you know like having you know like a plan like a strategy if when whatever and I think because one of the challenges is there are just so many different ways to scam. Somebody and like Chuck mentioned people just continue to Kinda easy same scams. They just always a new twist to them. So you know it's just it's difficult to kind of create a plan because scams can come in so many shapes and sizes and like You know we talked about earlier. Anybody can be a victim of a scam. Anybody can be caught essentially Scam proof impossible. I don't care how much education you have and I don't care how many plans you create can never completely scam proof yourself. And that's because scammers know how to appeal to people's emotions and why again and again when you really effective scam designed to prey on base human emotions. You've got love. Which is those romance scams which are really effective Natural Disaster Death Sickness. Things like that people aren't necessarily thinking clearly they're not thinking straight their emotionally vulnerable and they can be victimized when they're in that setting so yeah. I really encourage people you know. Hang up the phone quickly. Don't engage with a scammer. But not so much of a game plan like which relatives the contractor not to contact although it might be effective for some people to to think like that and come up with you know basic strategy for dealing with some of these issues.
