Confronting the Challenge of COVID-19 in American Indian Communities

  • Tuesday, May 12, 2020
  • Online on Zoom

American Indian communities in the United States have improbably survived centuries of dispossession, subjugation, endemic poverty, and coercive assimilation. The latest threat to their “survivance” is the COVID-19 epidemic. In this Virtual Radcliffe program, two Indigenous professors of medicine will consider the implications of the pandemic for lives and livelihoods in contemporary American Indian communities.
