The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Indigenous communities around the world. Yet, little is known about the nature of these impacts or how these communities have responded, and how these responses have varied in different regions of Canada, and the world. . This session will highlight some of the similarities and differences in community experience around the world, to examine to what degree these reflect a shared colonial legacy, and to explore what might be done to better support communities in the pandemic future regardless of their location.
