Native Families and COVID-19


Native youth have suffered the highest rate of caregiver loss from the pandemic—4.5 times higher than that of White children. This means that 1 of every 168 Native children have lost their primary caregivers to COVID, as compared with 1 of every 310 Black children, 1 of every 412 Hispanic children, and 1 in every 753 White children.
