The U.S. Post Office in Nixon, Nev. is seen on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020. The majority of the more than 1,300 Pyramid Lake Paiute tribal members receive their mail in shared P.O. boxes at the reservation’s sole U.S. Post Office in Nixon, Nev., which is only open from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Post offices on tribal lands will play an integral role in ensuring Native Americans can access voting in Nevada and elsewhere in the U.S. West in the 2020 election, but advocates worry residents of sprawling, rural reservations who lack transportation may struggle to get to the post office.

This December 2016 photo provided by the family shows, from left, Lu Wang, Ming Wang and Anne Peterson. Ming Wang, 71, was sickened in March 2020 on a cruise from Australia with his wife, a break after decades of running the family’s Chinese restaurant in Papillion, Neb. In the 74 days he was hospitalized, doctors desperately tried various experimental approaches, including enrolling him in a study of an antiviral drug that ultimately showed promise. Ming died on June 8. “It was just touch and go. Everything they wanted to try we said yes, do it,” said his daughter, Anne Peterson. “We would give anything to have him back, but if what we and he went through would help future patients, that’s what we want.” (Anne Peterson via AP)
