Prior to shelter in place order, 80,000 pounds food from Humanitarian Services unloaded in Tohatchi, NM. Food unloaded then packaged for distribution and delivery.  Community is a bunch of people supporting and looking after one another. 
Being concern and deeply seeing each other as a community family fabric. We have to do our part in supporting our essential workers, even as much as listening and obeying their instructions.

" If you have come here to help me, you're wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine,  then let us work together." Lilla Watson

Never too young to serve.

Community is a bunch of people looking after one another, being concerned and deeply seeing each other as a community family fabric. Weavers get a thrill out of bringing out the best in one another to create a bond. Earth Maker likes effort, that is all I got to say about that. Everyone wants to contribute in thought, prayer, with labor, and perhaps to cheer up efforts made. 

Our community can always count on our alliance. Our community, our nest, our flock
We are doing what we can, and are able to do.
Tohlakai strong.

Earl and Brenda, thanks for this important coverage. It will help to insure the word gets out and that the human right to social protection and environmental safety is insured going forward as we meet the challenges of this pandemic together.
