The Influenza Epidemic of 1918-1920 among the Navajos

In this article, the experience of the 1918 influenza among the Navajos is organized according to risk factors gleaned from studies of the pandemic among other Indigenous populations. We proceed from a review of these risk factors to a description of the 1918 influenza on the Navajo reservation, drawing on both Navajo and non- Navajo sources. We conclude with a reassessment of influenza- related mortality on the reservation, adjusting early published official figures to reflect later data.
