Native News Online Live Stream Tackles Opioid Crisis in Indian Country

On Native News Online’s live-streamed event “Overcoming Opioid Abuse in Indian Country,” four panelists from across Indian Country provided insights into the problem that afflicts Indian Country and beyond.

Moderated by Native News Online publisher and editor Levi Rickert, the live stream panel last week consisted of Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr.; former Shinnecock Nation tribal chairman and current Tribal Ambassador Lance Gumbs; Ashley Hesse, vice president of policy at Indigenous PACT; and Jason Sundby, chief operating officer of Deterra Drug Deactivation System.
