We will also have Easter candy for the kids! We will keep our social distance at 6ft, we will wear masks and gloves too. We want to make sure our volunteers and community are safe! We have enough food for 500 families. God bless you

I was wondering if there any kind of stimulus check for enrolled members like the one the IRS is issuing? My tax refund goes to my ex. And it wouldn't be fair if she got this also. I have to live too. Just asking. Thanks.

It's for our people. Do you realize that if our children or grandchildren go into the hospital they will suffer. No parent or grandparent will be able to hold them... to comfort them. They will be in an area alone and suffering. Our elders will also suffer alone. No children or grandchildren to comfort them. They can also die alone. Be cremated and buried without us. I will do everything possible for my child. My grandchildren. My brothers and sisters. Their families. So even tho we will suffer.. just like our lodges we do this for our families. Just my thoughts on this. I miss my lil family. I pray for them constantly. That's why I will sacrifice everything for them.

From what I heard your council members and their families are sitting pretty while the rest of us are struggling out here. We all can't afford to stay home for a whole two weeks. I can't find what I need today so I have to go find what I can tomorrow. I've had to give some of my elders tissue and food because they have nothing. It's time for the council to start helping their people now!!!

Like that’s going to happen. We can’t all stay home and not go to work. We can’t not stay home without food/ and necessities to live. Bills don’t stop coming.

Arapaho traditions is to extend help to those that need it. We have very large families, therefore we should be helping each other. Shame on you if you are watching family go without and you know you can help.

So are we still allowed to hunt? And what if we still have to go to work? most dont clock out till after 5??? Also most dont have their own vehicles and need rides to get to and from work how is this going to affect them?

Its just basically asking ppl who are able to stay home to stay home and shutting down small buisness restaurants playgrounds recreational its what Utah's under already you can still go out to get food and it involves the police who can give tickets but working ppl medical construction school lunch ect. their still all working here I still am and our numbers here are over a 1000 as of today ppl don't listen their out and about shopping everything but the Shelter in place is the one to worry about

What happens if u don't do it and continue to goto work

Can essential workers still go to work in Riverton?

So what about the people that don't have money to stock up and get supplies for two weeks??? I know of people who are not getting any kind of help that need supplied and food

Where's the elders supplies?? We sent them forms in never heard or received anything yet ...

These comments are exactly why this virus is going to ravage this reservation.

Like this will keep natives home. They don't listen.

Where are our young men who should be looking after our tribe?
