The survey explores; the impacts of COVID-19 on Native peoples, their families and communities, the impacts of racism and discrimination upon Native peoples’ lives, and identifies Native peoples' priorities for future. The results of the survey will help inform advocacy priorities for tribal leaders, policymakers, organizations, and more. It will also ensure that Native voices, needs and issues are visible in the popular media and American public during a crucial time in this country.
