Many Navajos face pandemic without running water, tribal members urged to ‘lift each other up’

Description (Dublin Core)

By McKenzie Allen-Charmley/Luce Foundation: Southwest Stories Fellowship
PHOENIX – By now, you’ve probably heard it more times than you can count: One of the simplest ways to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection is to wash your hands.

But for the nearly one in three Navajo Nation households without indoor plumbing, that’s easier said than done.

“People (here) call it a luxury to be able to have running water,” said Yolanda Tso, a Navajo Nation member and community advocate. “I don’t really believe that should be considered a luxury in this day and age, especially in this country.”
