Summary – Webinar: Governing through Crisis

Publication

Indigenous communities reacted fast and quickly in response to the COVID19 pandemic and implemented measures early on to protect and keep safe Indigenous communities.

Key Themes:

  • Indigenous communities reacted fast and quickly in response to the COVID19 pandemic and implemented measures early on to protect and keep safe Indigenous communities.
  • This situation has fostered improved communication from community, local, regional, State, and national networks, through the adoption of various mediums of communication – telephone, video, electronic, social media, and print.
  • Technology has been a major factor in the effectiveness in responding to the COVID19 challenges, such as broadening the access to health services through telehealth and the increase reach through language apps and translations of information into Indigenous language.
  • For those who have isolated on community, this period has seen a return to country and cultural practices, such as hunting, gathering, knowledge sharing, engagement between generations and cultural transmission – seeing returning to the “family”.
