Protect the Sacred

Protect the Sacred is a grassroots initiative that was created in response to the growing COVID-19 crisis in the Navajo Nation by empowering Navajo youth as leaders and working with allies to meet the health needs of the community. Young people rise up as the next generation of leaders in protecting their elders, languages, medicine ways and cultures. The Navajo Nation, the country’s largest Native American reservation, now has a higher death rate per capita than any U.S. state except New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. With a population of 175,000 living on the reservation, 3,245 confirmed positive cases and 103 deaths as of May 12, the Navajo Nation now has more known COVID-19 cases per capita than any U.S. state.

Protect the Sacred is partnering with Tribal leadership, artists, and leaders of the entertainment industry and media to share their expertise and resources to provide donations and medical assistance. Protect the Sacred is supported by nonprofit organization Harness, and works in partnership with the Office of the Navajo Nation, We Stand United and Native Renewables.
