Leech Lake Tribal Council brings supplies to affected Native American communities in Minneapolis


Members of the Leech Lake Tribal Council and council staff traveled to Minneapolis on June 2 to bring supplies to affected native communities.

LEECH LAKE --Members of the Leech Lake Tribal Council traveled to Minneapolis earlier this week to bring food, water and supplies to Native American communities living in south Minneapolis neighborhoods that have faced destruction.

"As we have been watching along with the rest of the world, resources in their community have been destroyed and caused many difficulties for the people there," Tribal Chairman Faron Jackson Sr. explained in a video update posted Wednesday. "Stores where many would go get groceries and other supplies are no longer an option. Metro Transit service was suspended, making it extremely difficult for people to reach other areas and get those needed items."

The council intentionally waited until after June 1 to make the supply run, which was when the Leech Lake COVID-19 stay-at-home order expired.
