Understanding the Voting Challenges Facing Native Americans
Voting is fundamental to our democracy. But, it took decades for most current day citizens to win the right to vote, including Native Americans.

With the help of “Indian Country Today,” Matter of Fact visited the Hopi Reservation to understand the voting challenges Native Americans face.
