How do Native Americans experience discrimination in daily life? A new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health illuminates Native Americans’ personal experiences with discrimination. The report reveals that more than a third of Native Americans and their family members have experienced slurs and violence, and close to a third have faced discrimination in the workplace and when interacting with police. The poll also reveals that Native Americans who live in majority-Native areas are significantly more likely to experience this kind of discrimination.
This poll is one a series of reports that surveyed additional groups, including Latinos, Asian Americans, African Americans, white Americans, men, women, and LGBTQ adults, on their experiences with discrimination.
This Forum event was presented December 13, 2017, in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and NPR.
