Happy Summer, Stay Safe
There are many summer social activities that take place in American Indian and Alaska Native communities including powwows, rodeos, basketball and softball tournaments, traditional dances, spiritual ceremonies, and more. It is important that we encourage everyone to participate in safe public health practices during the warmer summer months.
