Thank you to compassionate people that continue to donate for our grassroots effort to continue to deliver food out on O'odham lands. Today perishables were fresh eggs and whole chicken and ham. Also potatoes and dry milk packets, 100 percent juices, and fresh oranges. It's a beautiful drive and beautiful smiles from all the families living in remote areas. What we delivered today is not much but it's food for another week for big families. I wanted to share the beauty of the land.

The Oklahoma IHS area includes Oklahoma, Kansas and portions of Texas. In related news, Dallas area schools show the rapid spread of coronavirus, including in preschools.

The Pfizer vaccine experiments, which the Navajo government is encouraging, have effects of exhaustion, fever and headaches, participants said.

The Navajo vaccine experiments are being carried out by Johns Hopkins researchers, who have a history of infecting Indigenous in medical experiments. Johns Hopkins uses IHS hospitals-- but it is not IHS. Read more: Pfizer vaccine effects: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/01/coronavirus-vaccine-trial-participants-exhaustion-fever-headaches.html

Across the U.S., schools are trying to hide coronavirus cases. Even when teachers are infected and children are sent home to quarantine, it is often not in the news.

At the same time, large numbers of deaths from coronavirus in nursing homes are not appearing in the data, which is obvious from the data shown in counties.

Right now, two states that are reporting coronavirus spread through schools are Utah and Colorado. The State of New Mexico shows a rise in cases. In South Dakota, all schools in Pierre have coronavirus cases.

The White House announced today that both Trump and the First Lady tested positive for coronavirus. Read article at CBS
