Spectrum News: Fernandeño Tataviam Works to Vaccinate Indigenous Community

Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians originated in the areas ranging from Simi Valley and Malibu in the west, Cahuenga and Encino in the south, Tujunga in the east, and the present-day Tejon Ranch in the north. To this day, they continue to not only be dedicated to preserving and enriching tribal culture but embracing their community roots to help them thrive. As part of this tenet, they are making Covid-19 vaccinations easy to access and readily available to residents of the Northeast San Fernando Valley by providing vaccinations via three pop-up clinics as well as a mobile vaccination “come to you” service for individuals with transportation challenges. “Community outreach is a large part of what we do. Through our Tribe’s non-profit, Pukúu Cultural Community Services (Pukúu), we provide community programs to Native Americans living in Los Angeles County,” says Rudy Ortega, Jr., Tribal President. “But we are invested in all of the people of our communities and are happy to have some great local partners through the Medi-Vaxx Program to make sure everyone has easy access to this vaccination, especially those that are traditionally underserved by the medical community.” The Medi-Vaxx Program is a collaboration between four groups in the San Fernando Valley. The Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians is working alongside The Mission Community Hospital, El Proyecto del Barrio, and First Med Ambulance to ensure that underserved subgroups, namely Latinx individuals, Native-American individuals, and elders over 65 years old are conveniently served with vaccinations.
