Chan, Zuckerberg fighting Native American vaccine hesitancy

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Dakota and Navajo actor Dallas Goldtooth joins other influencers — people who have earned the community’s trust — in a two-phase public outreach effort by nonprofit organizations IllumiNative, the Urban Indian Health Institute, and 13 Native groups in states including Alaska, Minnesota, and California.

    The goal is to overcome Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy.

    The latest phase of the For the Love of Our People campaign is using $900,000 from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to focus on family and generational pride to encourage vaccinations.

    Grassroots organizations in Covid hotspot states were each given $30,0000 as part of the outreach.
