The role of environmental radiation in the etiology of birth defects, stillbirths, and other adverse outcomes of pregnancy was evaluated for 13,329 Navajos born at the Public Health Service/Indian Health Service Hospital in the Shiprock, New Mexico, uranium mining area from 1964 to 1981. This journal article from Health Physics discusses the methodology and results of that study.
