COVID-19 cases amongst Wisconsin’s native peoples have tripled since September first, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. That rate of increase far outpaces positivity rates amongst any other racial groups in the state.
About 2,333 total American Indians have tested positive in Wisconsin, up from 775 at the start of September.
To discuss how the increases have impacted Wisconsin’s Menominee residents, WORT Producer Jonah Chester spoke with Joan Delabreau, Chair of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.
