Episode 9: Complexities of Culture, Resources, and Policy in Gallup, New Mexico

In this episode we had the opportunity to speak to an educator living in Gallup, McKinley County, New Mexico during this pandemic. We hear about the  pandemic spread and its severity disproportionately affecting Native American populations in the region, despite the proactive efforts of state level policy. We also learn about some of the multicultural history and background of the region, in addition to some of its additional challenges of air quality, education and other economic risks adding to the challenges of the pandemic.

The episode was recorded just a few days before the current news about the closure of roads into Gallup at the current time:
