“In 2018, a huge fire burned through Telegraph Creek. That fire destroyed 27 structures in the community. 21 of them were homes. At that time, I got a call asking if I would be the Emergency Operations Centre Director. My question was, ‘Okay. What does that person do?’ He said, ‘Rebuild the community.’ I thought, ‘Oh I could do that.’

In March 2020, when the global pandemic was declared, I was asked to help out again. I'll say, we compared it quite a bit to the fire. The difference is, COVID is an unseen threat that we have to try to manage, versus a fire. Fire you can see coming—you know you can get out of the way.

When you live in a small community and you have a lot of elders, you know that at any time an outbreak could happen and you could lose a lot of people. We live so far away from hospitals. It's a lot harder in northern and remote communities to do simple things. We lived in fear.

Our communities are socially interactive. People have to go see their elders to make sure they have enough food they got to make sure to have groceries and all that. Our jobs is to take care of our elders and our people who need help.

When I heard the vaccines were coming to our communities, I'm gonna say I took the largest sigh of relief I could have ever taken in my life. It's almost like, I don't even know how to explain, almost like euphoria. So the vaccines were just—they were perfect. Now that my in-laws are vaccinated and a lot of the elders in the community are vaccinated, it just took a load off of us. Like, you could even feel it.”

Feddie Louie is the Director of the Tahltan Emergency Operations Centre. She received her first dose of the vaccine in January 2021. Remote and isolated Indigenous communities are included in Phase 1 of BC's immunization plan. Learn more about the plan here: gov.bc.ca/covidvaccine
