In this episode, Shanna and Yotakahron attempt to record virtually (forgive the Rez wifi cutting out a few times)! Due to the pandemic, they’re both living back in their communities of Wikwemikong and Six Nations. They wanted to share their experiences being back home for quarantine, what their communities are doing in response to COVID-19, and how they’re trying to take care of themselves during this time. Remember: Wash Your Hands, Practice Social Distancing, Stay Home and Stay Safe!
