Death And Neglect At Federal Tribal Jails

Death And Neglect At Federal Tribal Jails

At least 19 people have died in tribal jails overseen by the federal government since 2016, according to an investigation by NPR and the Mountain West News Bureau. As part of our ongoing coverage of mistreatment of inmates on reservations, the bureau is highlighting some of the victims and the circumstances around their deaths, which reflect decades of mismanagement, neglect and poor training. This series is supported by the Pulitzer Center.
