Abstract: Housing affects multiple aspects of human well-being—including education, health, and wealth outcomes. Yet, in the sociological research on housing, there is a glaring omission: the housing experiences of Indigenous people who live in urban areas. Using semi-structured in-depth interviews, we have been talking with American Indian/Alaska Native people who live in urban settings across the United States. Focusing on their experiences of finding housing (or lack of), respondents have been sharing how they perceive their lived experiences of race, gender, and other aspects of identity to be at play in housing processes and outcomes. We will provide a brief overview of the project, focus on the experiences participants have been sharing with us so far, and conclude with future directions of the work and potential policy interventions.
