Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

When a home is under isolation don’t label/stigmatize them, they are taking precautions and following guidelines to prevent the spread COVID-19 to others

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

Listeners, kwah’kway for tuning in to our Hopi Tribal Council simulcast. We appreciate Council and staff for permitting these historic live broadcasts;

What you hear is the exact same audio quality Council members on the Zoom call are experiencing;

We believe a Tribal laptop is feeding audio signal to the Zoom call from its internal microphone - meaning it might not be patched into the in-chambers-Council members' mics;

In addition, numerous Council members - both in chambers & on Zoom - don't have their mics muted while others are speaking, thus detracting from the signal;

We appreciate your understanding and again thank Council, staff & especially Hopi Tribe’s IT department for their work…

ICNB 6-4-2020 Report [edited 1645 6/4/2020]:


This is _____________ with KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau (8am Thursday June 4) COVID-19 pandemic update:

While KUYI’s on-air computer has been fixed, our production computer is now being repaired…

This will limit our ability to air new audio recordings and content;

Please check our facebook page for updates; We thank you for your patience!


KUYI’s Indian Country News Bureau has a report on yesterday’s police activity atop First Mesa:

Hopi Law Enforcement Services Chief Virgil J. Pinto said officers responded to shots fired early Wednesday morning;

There were no injuries;

Two individuals were contacted & arrested on an outstanding warrant, drug paraphernalia & other charges;

Shots were fired from the mesa top towards the open desert area, but not at any individual or property;

An investigation is ongoing;


Almost six months since the first COVID-19 case was reported, the Indian Health Service has announced it’s forming a “Critical Care Response Team’”

The agency established to uphold the federal trust responsibility for providing effective health care to Tribes made the announcement on Tuesday;

It states: “expert physicians, registered nurses, and other healthcare professionals [will] ...as needed... provide urgent lifesaving medical care to COVID-19 patients [at] IHS or tribal hospitals;

The team will provide “...clinical education... treat patients, expand capacity and train… health care professionals… [and] ...can be at the bedside of the patient within 24-48 hours notice… ”

It is unclear at this time how much access local IHS facilities will have to the team or what their plans are to utilize it...;


Some Arizona law enforcement agencies have stated they will not enforce Arizona Governor Doug Ducey’s curfew; Holbrook, Winslow & Williams police departments, as well as Navajo County Sheriff’s Office & others say they won’t enforce it;

Coconino County Sheriff’s Office will enforce the curfew on a case-by-case basis while the Flagstaff Police Department says it’s working to ensure public safety;

The Hopi Tribe's General Counsel issued the following directives, quote;

“The Governor’s Order does not apply to members of the Hopi Tribe on the Hopi Reservation. However, if you are Hopi and off the Reservation, the curfew will apply to you.”

Exceptions are if you are caring for a family member, friend, animal or buying groceries in town; it will not apply while traveling directly back and forth from those services;

The Hopi Tribe has extended the stay-at-home order until JUN 20;


On Wednesday June 3 the Hopi Tribe's Department of Health & Human Services released the following COVID-19 test data:

1,196 are negative and 41 results are pending;

Shungopavi: 12;

In response to protests over the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey yesterday declared a state of emergency;

A nightly 8pm to 5am curfew will last all week;

The Hopi Tribe's General Counsel Fred Lomayesva issued the following statement in response, quote:

"I have reviewed the Governor’s Declaration of Emergency, Imposition of Curfew.

Applicability of the Governor’s Order:

The Governor’s Order does not apply to members of the Hopi Tribe on the Hopi Reservation. However, if you are Hopi and off the Reservation, the curfew will apply to you.

Exceptions:

There are important exceptions to the Governor’s Order. If you are buying groceries in town, it will not apply to you when you travel directly to the store or home. If you are traveling to or from caring for a family member, friend or animal, it will not apply.”;


Floyd, a 46-year-old black Minnesota man, died after bystander videos showed a Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.


In addition, Flagstaff’s Vice Mayor Adam Shimoni stated, quote:

"Traveling between any two locations within Arizona is not prohibited by the Governor's recent Executive Order. This includes members traveling to and from Flagstaff back to Hopi"



The Hopi Tribe has extended the stay-at-home order until JUN 20;

In the extension the Tribe cites the continued threat of COVID-19 to vulnerable Hopi citizens;

Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey let the state’s order expire on MAY 15, a move many criticized as not being based upon science and caution;


On Thursday May 28 the Hopi Tribe's Department of Health & Human Services released the following COVID-19 test data:

1013 people have been tested at Hopi Health Care Center:

86 are positive, which includes 35 Hopi Tribal members;

564 are negative and 363 results are pending;

Yuh’wehlo’pahqi (Spider Mound) = 4

Hotevilla = 3


The preceding numbers do not include state-wide data on Hopi tribal members nor reflect patients at other regional facilities;

Authorities have previously confirmed positive cases in Bacavi and in the Lower and Upper Villages of Moencopi;

Tribal officials stated they plan to release confirmed numbers of deaths;


As of noon Monday June 1st the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Arizona has surpassed the twenty-thousand mark, increasing to 20,123…

View this data online at: az dhs dot gov, hopi hyphen nsn dot gov, and the Navajo Nation’s COVID-19 site;

The Navajo Nation has extended it’s declaration of a state of emergency through JUN 7;

all members two years old and older must wear a facemask when outside of the home to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19;

Community Calendar Friday, May 14, 2020

Updated 5/14/2020 8:30pm


The Hopi Tribe states they’re increasing contact tracing of COVID-19;

Tribal officials will work with the Department of Health & Human Services, Hopi Health Care Center and C.D.C to monitor COVID-19 transmission patterns to, quote, “ensure the health of our Hopi-Tewa villages and communities” as follows:

Nurses and Community Health Representatives will contact those who may have been exposed...

give them instructions on what symptoms to look for as well as what to do if they fall ill and how to prevent the spread of the disease;

they’ll check in with the person, sometimes daily, to see if symptoms have developed, ensure quarantine compliance, and provide treatment;

Tribal officials state this is a necessary step to evaluate gradual resumption of daily activity;


And the Hopi Tribe states the amount of money it is scheduled to receive from March’s Federal CARES-act is $85 point 5 million dollars;

However not all of that money has been sent to the Hopi Tribe let alone to all other Native Nations:

A pending lawsuit with Alaskan Corporations is holding up full distribution of CARES-act funds;

Vice Chairman Clark Tenakhongva added, “Until a

resolution has been drafted and presented to the Hopi Tribal Council to accept the funds...this money is not officially part of the Tribal coffers;

...once these funds are accepted...we can prioritize efforts to improve community infrastructure [to] improve our ability to respond and prepare for future emergencies...”

And here’s another Indian Country News Bureau report:

The Hopi Tribe has joined the Tohono O'odham in continued opposition to the Trump Administration's border wall plans;

In a letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Vice Chairman Tenakhongva warned against the damage to the Palat’kwapi migration route and numerous cultural sites construction of the wall would cause;

Last year the President allowed the suspension of numerous laws including the Archeological Resources and Native American Graves Protection Acts so 74 miles of border wall could be built;

The Tribe demands all border wall preparations cease and also cites the threat to endangered wildlife like jaguar and owls;

Vice Chairman ends the letter with, quote, “At a time of national emergency this project is not only misguided but ...a waste of resources”

Updated 4/23/2020 8am

Eleven Tribes have sued the Treasury Department to prevent any of the eight-billion-dollars in the CARES act from going to for-profit Alaska Native companies;

The Treasury has until April 26 to assist federally-recognized Tribes in remaining solvent as their businesses struggle during mandatory lockdowns;

The Tribes cite Alaska Native Corporations’ access to billions of dollars of revenue goes against Congress’ intent to relieve financially-strained Tribal governments.
