March 2021

Dear Friends,
The year 2021 has started strong at First Nations and our support of Native communities. As we enter spring, we continue to invest in the ingenuity of our community partners as they create and bolster systems and solutions for improved health, infrastructure, and economies. The effects of COVID-19 linger, but the resilience and strength of Native communities still shines through. Here, we again are happy to share some of their stories. We wish you all a safe and healthy spring.
