The Native American Journalists Association has set The Invisibility of Indigenous COVID-19 Data virtual roundtable and live Q&A for 4 pm CT on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, via Zoom.

Health departments are not including Native Americans in their racial demographic data even in areas with high numbers of Native residents. This continues the “invisibility” of these communities that were already at risk. How do journalists navigate these barriers to ensure inclusive, contextual and responsible coverage of Indigenous people and communities?

The roundtable panelists include:

  • Beth Red Bird, faculty fellow at the Center for Native American and Indigenous Research and the Institute for Policy Research, and assistant professor at Northwestern University.
  • Kalen Goodluck, contributing editor at High Country News covering the pandemic in Indian Country.

Moderated by Jourdan Bennett-Begaye (Diné), NAJA board member and deputy managing editor at Indian Country Today.

Participants may register in advance here. After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email with information about how to join the webinar.
