As the number of people infected with the coronavirus continues to grow, please pray for our Father's healing touch and that this virus goes away soon.
If you know of anyone in CTNEAL who has been infected, please let me know. Many of our citizens have stepped up to help during this crisis. Our tribal nurse came out of retirement and had her license temporarily reinstated. Several of our citizens are making masks for our citizens and for the health-care system. At least one citizen is helping citizens who are unable to get out for food and medicine. Keep in touch with your District Representative and your officers ... Let us know your needs and we will make every effort to help you.
The opportunity to self-respond to the 2020 Census ended on October 15, 2020. Population counts should be available by the end of February. Having an accurate count will provide many benefits to our citizens over the next decade and we thank each of you who took time to participate in this initiative.
