#NavajoHopiCovid19Relief fund near $3M. The #Irish campaign to repay a debt to #NativeAmericans at www.gofundme.com/f/NHFC19Relief, moves me. How could the 1845 #Choctaw driven off their homes & forced onto #reservations under #genocidal conditions, find the heart to help the starving of the #potatofamine so far away?
❤️Their #international #kindness should be a lesson to us.
❤️The #Irish generosity today shames us. 30% of the #NavahoNation have no #runningwater. Almost 1/5 don’t have electricity.
❤️These conditions help explain why #Navahos #Hopis have 3rd highest #coronavirus infection rate in the nation.
❤️#Covid19 makes us confront the #inequity that can no longer be ignored.

#Kindness remembered. More >170 years ago, the #Choctaw Nation very poor themselves sent $170 to starving #Irish families in 1845. 1M died during the #potatofamine. nyti.ms/3caHf6T
Now hundreds of #Irish donors are returning the help. www.gofundme.com/f/NHFC19Relief
➡️#NativeAmericans have higher rates of #Coronavirus. The #NavahoNation has the highest rate of #covid19 infection after the #NY-#NJ-#CT-#Massachusetts corridor.
➡️More >2,373 have been infected, 73 died
➡️Many homes do not have #runningwater or have #contamination from #coal or #uranium mining
➡️#Oakland has many ties to this area. In 1952 the feds tried to disband reservations. Oakland was one of the #UrbanRelocation cities #NativeAmericans from across the nation live here.

Both the internal #FEMA report and the #UofWA #healthdata tracker covid19.healthdata.org are predicting a #surge in #coronavirus deaths and cases based on states relaxing #socialdistancing. That may do more to hurt rather than help the economy. Luckily most Americans seem to be more cautious than Trump.

📈First hard hit cities like #NYC leveling off in #newcases but others r taking off
