Navajo and Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief has been hard at work strategizing on how to reach our most rural communities across Navajo and Hopi Nations while keeping everyone safe. This week we had our first distribution to the Pinon community! A total of 110 boxes of food and water were unloaded, sanitized, packages and delivered by volunteers from the Pinon Community and Chapter.
Volunteers received the required safety training that we conduct before any distribution can begin that falls in line with the Navajo Nation safety protocols. After their training was complete they sanitized, packaged and delivered 110 boxes of food for the elders and struggling families in Pinon area. . Relief includes water from Native Hawaiian actor Jason Momoa known as Aquaman in movies. 

Pinon volunteers and chapter staff were incredible and easy to work with! Thank you so much to them for making this happen. Thank you to Jonathan Allen …

The COVID19 virus invades unsuspecting human bodies destroying lives, families, futures. It gives no exemption for economic status, physical strength, or color of skin. It seeks life to give death. It is alive with death. It brings down the famous and powerful. The disadvantaged are easy prey. There is little refuge from the killer virus.

This enemy of life exposes the vulnerabilities of the ‘greatest’ country on the planet. It cripples the best of western science and medicine. Our frontlines to repel this enemy are becoming defenseless, they are tired, they look for relief that may not come. We thank them and pray them peace and strength.

The faithful and the faithless asks why God allows this to happen, we seek for answers, we ponder, we try to find reason. This must be a message that we have drifted too far from the teachings of life we were set on this earth with.…

THE FINAL WARNINGPosted on April 26, 2020 Mohawk Nation NewsMNN. Apr. 26, 2020. COVID19 has become part of the 95% depopulation of the world according to UN Agenda 21 and 30.THE SHUTDOWN STARTED THE WORLDWIDE ELIMINATION OF POLLUTION! In 1974 the UN informed the world that the state has no use for ‘useless eaters’. The masters of the settler colonists set up a system on who would live or die. The invaders spread viruses among us. 150 million natives of turtle island were exterminated. The invaders made laws to give themselves the unlawful right to murder us without being charged with homicide. We were declared to be non-persons. The immigrants were given permits to extinguished us and steal our land. They started with the viruses they brought here, then bounties for heads, scalping and so on. Now COVID19 virus has come, will fade and come again.The settler colonists are conditioned to obey their masters who keep them in a hypnotic state. Their white uneducated medicine man even suggests…
