Navajo Nation, the largest Native American reservation, is leading the country in #COVID19 vaccination rates and could be the first in the U.S. to achieve herd immunity. @cbsmireya traveled to Navajo Nation in Arizona and New Mexico to check on the fight and the lessons learned.
There are over 67,000 eligible voters living in Navajo Nation, which stretches across Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico. Trying to get members here to the polls, means knowing which state to vote in but after being devastated by COVID-19, Navajo Nation is showing up to the polls.
U.S. native tribes have been seriously impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, with the Navajo Nation, which resides in Utah, New Mexico and Arizona has one of the highest virus infection rates in the country.
The Navajo Nation spans for more than 25,000 square miles over parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. It is one of the hardest hit communites per capita in the United States. Listen to @cbigwater here. A beautiful and important message shared through art.
