Dear Aii Speakers, Presenters, Exhibitors, Vendors – Friends,

With heavy hearts, we inform you that the 2020 Native Women’s and Men’s Health and Wellness Conference is now cancelled force majeure – impossibility cancellation due to circumstances beyond our control, i.e. CDC and WHO guidelines, COVID-19, travel restrictions, and inability to gather in groups of more than 10, etc. This is done with the best interests of each of you in mind.

Please consider your contract as terminated as the event has been cancelled force majeure. All refunds will be honored.

I will be contacting you, in the very near future, with ideas about how we can work together to bring meaningful learning opportunities and experiences to our communities. We dedicated one year to creating an incredible program focused on Native Health and Wellness and our goal is to now find innovative ways to share this important work with our communities. You will be hearing from me.

Thank you for your willingness to support Aii and work with us moving forward.

Please take good care.

I wish you health and wellness in this challenging time as we focus on our families, faith, and culture. Our communities across the country are historically resilient and continue to be. There are brighter days ahead!
