A novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) discovered in Wuhan, China late December 2019 has impacted our world as we now know it. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the impact of this virus a global threat and declared a global pandemic on March 12, 2020. As a community, action was required to protect our vulnerable community members/

As Haudenosaunee, this is not the first time we have had to endure a devastating disease. However, during times of adversity is when our people come together. In the past, we relied on the strength and knowledge of our leaders, healers and all community members to survive and recover. We can turn to those people, our language and our culture to guide us now.

Our community treasures are our elders and our children. Our elders hold the knowledge of the past and our children are our hope for the future.; this means we need to be mindful of the next seven generations when decisions are made.
