Native American Studies: COVID-19 & Indigenous Communities

"When talking about COVID-19, it’s important to acknowledge the impact of historical trauma on the health of our communities. Many Indigenous people have underlying health conditions and compromised immune systems; research demonstrates the serious impacts that historical trauma, colonization, and oppression have on immune system health. On top of this, the federal government has failed to meet its obligations to provide adequate healthcare services for Native nations. As we think about precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we must acknowledge that individual communities experience this threat differently based on their current realities."
