Impacts of Resource Development on American Indian Lands
What is this collection?
This collection contains an assortment of digital resources relevant to exploring American Indian land and resource development by using investigative case studies. We will systematically take an Earth System approach to understand resource development on American Indian lands.
The following case studies have been developed to tell the story of what happened there:
Uranium Mining on the Navajo Nation
Gold Mining and the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation
Coal Bed Methane and the Crow Reservation
Water Resources and the Nez Perce Indian Reservation
Gold Mining and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation
Resources of the Pribilof Islands
Who is this information for?
This collection is designed primarily for undergraduate and graduate level instructors and students. Of particular interest is to provide this information in an organized manner for American Indian peoples involved in the geosciences, and interest and recruit American Indian geoscience students.
