"This is national native news on Meghan camera in for Antonia Gonzalez. A hospital on the Navajo Nation near the Arizona New Mexico border is suing the Indian health service after a steep cut to its budget. As Arizona public radio's Ryan Heinz reports, the facility says the decision will heavily impact the quality of healthcare in nearby tribal communities. According to the fort defiance, Indian hospital board, the IHS cut 90% of the budget from the facility's contract support funding. It totals about $16 million in the hospital board says the move violates provisions of the Indian self determination and education assistance act. The 1975 law gives tribes the authority to contract with the federal government for programs that serve tribal members. The fort defiance hospital board slammed IHS decision to slash the budget, saying it's especially bad timing as the Navajo Nation continues to grapple with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cases on the vast reservation skyrocketed during the omicron fueled surge, setting the tribes all time record for new daily infections in mid January. The board says the cut will also impact employees in the local economy, making it more difficult to provide healthcare to Navajo communities. The IHS didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. For national native news, I'm Ryan Heinz in Flagstaff. In Detroit, police intervened to stop a Native American ceremony Friday night in a city park with one officer caught on a video posted to social media saying, quote, the sovereign stuff is not valid. The Detroit free press reports the ceremony was a kick-off to the Detroit sugar bush project for three years on a shinada and potawatomi people have taught participants how to tap maple trees in river rouge park and boil the SAP over a fire to make syrup. It's part of a larger food sovereignty movement and organizers have a memorandum of understanding with the city of Detroit and a burn permit for a bonfire. But police officers showed up in tactical garin told participants they had two minutes to put out the fire and leave. Attendees filed reports with the police department, which was unavailable for comment. However, the project organizers confirmed their paperwork is in order, and they reconvened Saturday morning in the park to reflect on what happened. Rosebud bear Schneider, a ceremony organizer, told the free press, quote, it's a shame that it's 2022, and we still have to fight for our rights and just to exist, as native people. A new apartment building has opened in Seattle's pioneer square, focused on low income and unhoused to Native Americans in the city. Indian country today reports all all was opened by the chief Seattle club, nonprofit organization, the name means home in the Lesotho language. The 80 unit building was designed by indigenous architects, residents or families must make below 50% of the area's median income and ten of the units are reserved for veterans. Monthly rents will range from about $216 to $556. Executive director of the club, Derek bell guard, said Native Americans in Alaska natives make up just 1% of King County's population, yet they account for about 15% of the chronically homeless. Bell guard says they're also battling more trauma and addiction from hundreds of years of oppression and forced relocation. This is the first housing project in Seattle geared to that population. The interior of the 9 story building features work by native artists and the exterior brickwork is designed with salish patterns. There's a space for a cafe serving traditional foods. There will also be a clinic in the building with a traditional healing space operated by the Seattle Indian health board. Bell guard told Indian country today that culturally specific programs tend to have higher rates of success, especially when people who are unhoused don't trust the mainstream system. The chief Seattle club has plans for another larger project called sacred medicine house due to break ground in the summer. For national native news, a Meghan camera.

She's the chief research officer at seattle indian health board and the director of the urban indian health institute in march of twenty twenty in the early days of the pandemic. She reached out to her federal health partners to ask for some more p. p. e. so the institute could continue to serve the native population in the seattle area instead of receiving masks and testing kits. She was sent bodybags abigail ponti and joins me now. Welcome to the show abigail and so excited to be here. Can you take take me back to that moment. When you opened up the box with the body bags and what happened we had gotten noticed at a large box had arrived at our clinic. We ran downstairs. We hoping for mask and when we opened it up what we saw instead was a box of bodybags. It was absolutely devastating. I remember taking one of the body bags out of the box. In the toe tags fell out of the bag and instantly there were tears in my eyes. Because all i could think about was the elders. I had seen upstairs. Wanting to get tested of our providers were showing their own mass of our executive leadership team. Who had started washing the scrubs of our providers at our own homes in order to ensure that they had what they needed. And when we asked for help bodybags is what we got. What did you think about when you saw what your federal health partners had sent you. When i saw what they had sent us. I wish i had been more surprised. Unfortunately i wasn't as we look at. How the federal government in the united states has provided the treaty obligations for american indians alaska. Natives we know they haven't and in fact they have never fully funded our healthcare systems and as a result of that we've seen our people have high rates of disease. We've seen our people die. And when i thought about it it was almost the perfect metaphor for what the federal government has been doing to us for centuries and that is giving us the thanks to bury our people in and not giving us the resources so are can live. When did you get the idea to transform the body bag into a rib andress. I've been working in healthcare for really long time and it's hard i have seen people die. I've seen are people not receive the resources that they need. And sometimes i'll drive home from my work and just cry all the way home and so i've had to find ways of coping with the trauma that i experience as an indigenous person working native healthcare. And so. I use the cultural traditions. That i have been taught by my aunties my relatives by my

Making sure American Indian COVID-19 cases are counted, and feeding a hungry heart
"The Corona virus pandemic underscores an issue Abigail Hawk the chief research officer of the Seattle Indian health. Board has been fighting her entire career, the exclusion of native people in public health data. We know that the data that's being collected across the United States isn't collecting race and ethnicity correctly however, even with that incredible lack of data, the data that we do have shows an incredible disparity. Growing up in rural Alaska. Echo Hawk was surrounded by examples of how a native community diligently cared for one. Another I was raised amongst incredible people who were the very first public health practitioners. I ever saw if somebody needed fed, they fed them. If somebody needed a ride to a doctor, a five hour trip tankards, Alaska, they drove them. All of my scientific background comes from that space of understanding what it means to serve the community and also the. As an indigenous person, I come from thousands of years of incredible indigenous scientists but after being stereotyped mistreated while seeking prenatal care in Seattle. Washington she knew how she can make an impact in her community. I had a medical assistant question me on how much I had been drinking. She pulled up my sleeves and then I realized she was checking my arm to see had track marks. It was really traumatizing to me is a a young person. I was only nineteen years old and as a result of that experience I didn't get prenatal care until I was in my second trimester, I became a grassroots advocate to ensure that native women were properly treated because we have some of the highest. Rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality within this country and as I went through my college years that turned into what I did my thesis on, she went on to study health policy at the University of Washington, but it wasn't easy navigating between Western, and indigenous knowledge systems. It was hard to balance who I was native person versus what the university is expected me to be and what Western science wanted almost insisted I had to be it became another struggle to be seen as relevant. As smart and as knowledgeable, the other people in the room, and in fact, in the first year of my career I would say that I did not actively practice indigenous science. We come from thousands of years of data gatherers in my communities. We know how to ensure that our corn grows for example, in a time where there is complete droughts I was called out by one of my elders in the fact that I no longer was representing or being an indigenous person it reminded me of. Who I was, and that I would not make any difference in my community. If I didn't go back to the knowledge that I knew was right that I knew was ethical. I was able to incorporate that and not only see how western science has a lot of basis in indigenous knowledge systems. But I also feel that western science needs to quit coming to indigenous people because they think we have all of the problems they need to come to us because we have all of the answers. Today Echo Hawk as the director of the urban Indian Health Institute, a Seattle based organization seeking to decolonize data by putting native people's priorities at the forefront of data collection by being intimately involved in the collection of information native people can shape the narratives told about their communities data and a Western context has always been used against native people. It has been used to show how bad off we are how higher suicide rates are higher diabetes is how we don't achieve the same educational standards Western folks that deficit narrative continues to build support stereotypes of those communities as being less than not as smart of they're responsible for. Their own health disparities all of those things as a result of that, many of our communities have protected themselves and have not participated actively data-gathering efforts across the United States and across the world and that was absolutely the right thing for them to do was to protect themselves. Tribal communities have a right to ensure that data gathered about them is used for their benefit and that they maintain ownership in control over that controlling the data also means making sure that indigenous people are counted in federal and state data sets in the United States. A practice not always followed despite a treaty agreement between tribal nations and the United States. Government. The US census didn't proactively count American Indians until eighteen sixty and this earth of data was used as settle on native peoples land. One of the things that we actively are fighting against is that a small population people don't gather the data about US correctly or they don't gather it at all. So very often albeit presentation, it will say a little asterix that we were American Indians Alaska natives were statistically insignificant to me. That is one of two things either you did not actively try or didn't know how to connect with the community to gather the data you needed to, and the other is, is that when? You eliminate us in the data. You are actively participating in the ongoing genocide of American Indians and Alaska natives, and that seems really strong to say, and yes, it is and I believe it one hundred percent. So I ask people to question these practices that they're doing and recognize that. Yes, I know they're not inherently individually racist but they're participating in a system that has been meant to eliminate my people. These data collection issues remain a major problem in the covid nineteen pandemic initially Echo Hawk was unable to access the CDC breakdown of race ethnicity data. Once she saw the data, she was unimpressed with its quality and breadth. What we found in twenty three states is that native people were three point five times more likely to be infected with covert than Non Hispanic whites. Why did we only do twenty three states in the country? because. The rest of the state simply hadn't gathered enough data for us to be able to analyze what was happening within their states. So only twenty three states had gathered seventy percent of their race ethnicity data policymakers are trying to make data driven decisions. How can they make data driven decisions with bad data? Gathering this data, the resources that we need are not being. In the right way because we don't know how to allocate them. Correctly, Echo Hawk has provided training to universities and the State Department about how to correctly collect race and ethnicity data as well as how to restructure their database systems to better serve indigenous people in all realms of public health. We know that there's about a twenty increase in domestic violence right now as a result of Covid and many of folks who could leave their homes for work or school or things like that to get away from their abusers for an amount of time no longer can do that. I'm deeply dedicated towards the safety of victims of sexual violence and domestic violence and other types of intimate partner violence and so. I am actively working with a large county here in Washington state where we are changing their database system. We are also going to assist them in working with the local tribal communities on what it means. Once they collect that data, how that data is shared back to the tribal communities, how it's analyzed and what kind of meaningful change can come from that at the end of the day. The individual story behind the data guides, echo hawks work. We are also listening to the stories of the community, the impact of a family who's lost both parents the impact of a tribe where cove nineteen has just ravishing through their communities causing so much destruction that qualitative data is justice important as the quantitative data. Simply. Because right now, we don't have enough of that quantitative data to get to those decision makers. So they can make those data driven decisions. Every single data point is a mother is grandfather is an uncle is an anti is relative. We have a responsibility to the story and two story teller to the story. We have a responsibility to ensure that it builds the strength of the community. It identifies gaps that we can then go in and work towards filling that it also shows the strength and the resilience season, the answers that are held within our community by hope for my great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great grandchildren. That they are not facing the same battles that I am facing that we have an opportunity to come together now as allies within the scientific community recognize we have gone wrong and to see our path forward.
