Activity: Race, Poverty, and Health
One of the key topics we focused on for this chapter is how race and ethnicity affect our life chances. For this assignment, you’ll watch a video on the experience of the Pima tribe in Arizona. The Gila River was the lifeblood for the Pima tribe. After water was diverted to provide water for the growing suburbs of Phoenix, the tribe became impoverished and many developed Type 2 diabetes due to the limited diet they could afford.
1. How did the damming of the Gila River benefit some in Arizona? Who benefited, and how so?
2. How did damming the Gila River hurt the Pima tribe?
3. The creation of the dam is considered by many to be a form of environmental racism. Explain this concept, and discuss how/in what ways damming the river can be considered an example of environmental racism.
4. What structural changes created cultural changes for the Pima?
5. We will also be talking about poverty and health in the coming weeks. What does this video tell us about how race, poverty, and health are connected?
