Abstract

Abstract:

Governor of Acoma Pueblo, Brian Vallo, explains how as a tribal leader he fulfills his responsibility to mobilize and respond during the pandemic and how traditional knowledge guides the work of being a resilient community. In this resilience, it is not only structure and landscapes and sites that must be protected, but people, community and social structures also need to be preserved. He believes the pandemic gives opportunity to consider the true essence of who they are as Acoma people and how to ensure preservation of their culture.
