First Nations communities that largely avoided the worst of the first wave of COVID-19 are now fearful of what’s to come as the weather gets colder. We talk to Peter Beatty, chief of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation in Saskatchewan; Keith Mason, pandemic coordinator in the Kasabonika Lake First Nation in northern Ontario; and Carrie Bourassa, professor of community health and epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan, and the Indigenous engagement lead for the federal COVID-19 Immunity Task Force.
