Protect Native Elders

Donation protected
In Native culture, Elders are the keepers of all the wisdom and knowledge of the people. Without them, we lose some of the very things that make us who we are. 

Right now we are responding to a crisis. It threatens those who are most vulnerable and precious.  This virus could decimate a generation of Native Elders and destroy a rich culture that has been passed down for countless generations.

Native Americans are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 in across America. 

Lack of running water, infrastructure, and health risk factors make the situation even more difficult. Given the higher health status enjoyed by most Americans, the lingering health disparities of American Indians and Alaska Natives are troubling.  

Protect Native Elders remains focused to support tribes across the United States. As COVID-19 devastates Indian country, new requests for unmet needs keep coming in daily: from the Pacific Northwest groups such as the Spokane Tribe of Indians to Southwestern nations such as Navajo and Zuni, to the Sioux nations in the Dakotas and the tribal groups in New York and New Jersey.
Please help us preserve the native elders, native wisdom, and support us in providing PPE essentials and supplies to these and other indigenous communities!
