Native America Calling
June 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Today, June 2 – Past disease outbreaks inform the current pandemic
The arrival of smallpox, measles and other diseases brought by foreign settlers is forever linked to the widespread devastation of Native Americans, who had limited or no immunity. The ultimate survival of both the inadvertent and deliberate spread of deadly contagions is an enduring testament to the resilience of Native people. Now, as we face a new disease threat, we’ll get a history lesson on how past outbreaks shaped subsequent generations and what more we can learn from those hardships.
