Upcoming webinar looks at Tŝilhqot’in responses to COVID-19

The Tŝilhqot’in National Government has launched a report entitled Dada Nentsen Gha Yatastɨg: Tŝilhqot’in in the Time of COVID.” Translated to English, the title means “I am going to tell you about a very bad disease.” The report documents the Tŝilhqot’in Nation’s coordinated and largely successful response to the pandemic.

This webinar, presented by the researchers who authored the report, will provide insight into Tŝilhqot’in experiences with COVID-19 and discuss some of its recommendations for the Nation moving forward. Panelists will also discuss the unique experiences, lessons learned and research that supports the 40 calls-to-action contained within the report. 

This free webinar will be moderated by Centre Academic Director Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Aki-Kwe, and will include an introduction by Tŝilhqot’in Chief Joe Alphonse. Learn more about the presenters and the report from the IRSI website.

When: Thursday, April 8 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Where: Online
