A group of Native American women from Utah is traveling the U.S. to promote healing from COVID-19.

They’re dancing in jingle dresses — traditional dresses made with beads and metal cones. The jingle dress was used for healing during another health crisis, the 1918 flu pandemic.

Brian Bull of KLCC reports.
