Author:

In South Dakota, members of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe are canvassing remote corners of the sprawling reservation on a mission to ensure that everyone is counted in this year's census. In Montana, Blackfeet Indians are visiting tribal schools to emphasize the importance of the census, hoping kids can persuade reluctant family members to fill out their forms. In Arizona, an advertising campaign will implore Navajos in their native language to participate.
