The health disparities that have formed in our society, have adversely affected groups of people who have systematically experienced greater obstacles to health based on their racial or ethnic group.The large disparities that are present in health insurance coverage related to race and ethnicity have been a part of the United States for a long time, also being a cause for concern among policymakers and health care professionals. As a result Native American communities face significant inequity in health care and health status compared to other U.S. populations and indigenous Americans continue to die at higher rates than other Americans in many categories of preventable illness.This information will be collected using anything that is easily accessible like texts, databases, such as the Indian Health Services and the American Bar Association, and documents to help understand the problem as thoroughly as possible, for anyone reading.
