Serving Our Navajo Family Affected by COVID-19

NavajoStrong was created to aid the Navajo community during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. We strive to honor our ancestors and empower the Diné by working hard to help citizens who are affected by disease, poverty, and other health disparities on the Navajo Reservation. We continue our support by focusing on self-sufficient projects that promote health, culture, and empowerment in long-term and meaningful ways.

Fighting the coronavirus in the Navajo Nation

The Navajo Nation is being decimated by the coronavirus with 85 deaths and more than 2,600 confirmed cases.

“Some of the messages that I get are heartbreaking as far as what’s going on. They haven’t received any sort of help from the government, they haven’t received their stimulus, and they’ve lost their job," Bud Frazier comments. 

 

You Cannot See the Future with Tears in Your Eyes

The Navajo Community is home to over 173,000 Native Americans who operate under their own tribal authority.


The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for health equity in the Navajo Nation. In May 2020, the Navajo Nation had surpassed New York and New Jersey with the most infections per capita. We are committed to improving health and well-being in the Navajo Nation.

New Mexico Native Americans only make up 5% of the population but they make up 20% of COVID-positive patients.
