Navajo and Hopi Relief on Hopiland: Photos by Hopi Lilian Hill

Navajo Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief has surpassed its goals and raised $4.2 million in donations. Along with people from around the world, the people of Ireland have donated for this relief, out of gratitude for the Choctaw's donation to the Irish in the days of the potato famine. On Tuesday, Hopi delivered food and supplies in Orayvi Village. Cassandra Begay said, "This work took careful coordination by our Hopi Team Leads Pam Lalo and Lilian Hill in partnership with the Orayvi Village Board of Directors. Thank you very much to Orayvi Village volunteers for all of their hard work and dedication. Without your time and energy this work wouldn’t be possible."

Lilian Hill said, "Thank you to Navajo and Hopi Families Covid-19 Relief Effort! With donations from the COVID-19 Relief fund, the Hopi Mutual Aid Team, in partnership with Village leaders and local volunteers, helped distribute food to the entire Village of Orayvi. Askwali to volunteers, the Village of Hotevilla, and those who have contributed to the fund and shared the campaign."



Vanessa Tullie, Dine' purchasing food and supplies, said, "Our food boxes are the best!
We take the time to  sterilize everything before it is handed out."
