Part 1: With the County of Los Angeles in California home to the largest urban Indigenous population throughout the politically defined borders of the settler colonial United States, declining SARS-Cov-2 rates, and SARS-Cov-2 vaccinations slowly becoming available, a collaboration between LA Native COVID-19 Response, the California Native Vote Project, United American Indian Involvement Inc., the American Indian Counseling Center, the Los Angeles City/County American Indian Commission, and Kedren Vaccines organized the American Indian, Alaska Native, and Indigenous COVID-19 Vaccine Pop-up community outreach event for free SARS-Cov-2 vaccinations, PPE, and food boxes for in-need Los Angeles American Indian, Alaska Native, and Indigenous populations. The American Indian, Alaska Native, and Indigenous COVID-19 Vaccine Pop-up will take place this May 1st and May 29th, 2021 at the Los Angeles State Historic Park from 10am to 2pm.
