While many people learned about the reality of life for various Native American tribes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there are plenty who are not yet NativeAware — and we need your help to change this.
We hope you will share this page with your friends and family to help everyone in your circle become NativeAware of what the tribes are currently up against, as well as what's working for them.
For example, Native Americans have historically been undercounted in the census. They were undercounted by 5 percent in the 2010 census, missing out on thousands of dollars in federal funding — a fair and accurate count from the #Census2020 is critical to shaping the future.
Many Native Americans also face barriers to voting, especially those in remote communities. In the 2020 election, the Native American vote was more important than ever in helping tribal communities to be fairly represented. Read our blog to learn about past Presidents who supported Native Americans.
Native Americans are stereotyped every year by Halloween costumes, and Columbus Day is still being celebrated despite harms done by the explorer and those who followed. And the pandemic has crystallized the true meaning of disparities and the lack of social justice toward the tribes.
Indigenous peoples in urban and reservation communities are innovating and adapting… creating, preserving, sharing, and surviving — enriching their own communities as well as the world around them.
