Honoring 5 phenomenal people who lost their lives to COVID-19

PBS, 06 Apr 2021
Correction: An earlier version of this story used audio of another elder in the Indian Peaks Band of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah speaking the traditional language while referencing Earnestine Jake Lehi. That audio has now been replaced with audio of Earnestine speaking. The NewsHour regrets the error.

As more than 550,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, we take a moment to remember five of the remarkable lives lost.
