COVID-19 data on Native Americans is ‘a national disgrace.’ This scientist is fighting to be counted
The full impact of Covid-19 on Indigenous communities in the U.S. is unclear because of racial misclassification and the exclusion of Indigenous communities from data sets and analyses used to make health policy decisions.
The Tamar is a relatively modest river. With a length of just 61 miles, and an average discharge at the upper tidal limit of just 807 cubic feet per second, it is dwarfed by other British rivers such as the Severn and the Thames. But despite its small scale, the Tamar has a heightened cultural significance: for more than a thousand years it has served as the border between the bulk of England to the east and Cornwall—a region with some distinct quasi-national characteristics—to the west. Nineteenth- and twentieth-century travel writers’ accounts of crossing this border have tended to construct the Tamar as a site of absolute transition from familiarity to otherness—a construction which has at times intersected with (and arguably informed) the emergence of modern identities of difference from within Cornwall.
