Research shows that AI/AN populations are more misclassified as another race than other racial groups in things like cancer registries or cardiovascular disease mortality rates. This misclassification likely results in an underestimated burden of chronic illness and COVID-19 in our communities and makes it hard to document health disparities.

Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan has been working to bring to light the importance of mitigating racial misclassification by encouraging individuals to "check their race(s)" when asked on health or other standard forms, and to understand the perspectives of Native Americans when being recorded by their racial identity.

ITC wants to hear thoughts and perspectives of Native Americans on this topic. Please take our three-question racial misclassification survey: https://forms.gle/Y93N3iPZUREg3usw5
