This is the July 21, 2021 hearing on "S. 1797, S. 1895 and H.R. 1688," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. From the opening statement of Brian Schatz: "During today's legislative hearing, we will consider three bills, S. 1797, the Urban Indian Health Providers Facilities Improvement Act, S. 1895, the Indian Health Service Sanitation Facilities Construction Enhancement Act, and H.R. 1688, the Native American Child Protection Act. The Federal Government has a special trust responsibility to ensure the general welfare of Native communities. That includes providing adequate health care to Native people, supplying tribal communities with clean, safe drinking water and protecting Native children. But for too long, Congress has underfunded Native-serving programs and ignored Native needs on the ground. The bills before this Committee today work toward righting these past injustices." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Randy Grinnell, Jonathan Nez, Robyn Sunday-Allen, Heidi Todacheene, and Gil Vigil.
