Uranium Radiation Dangers on the Navajo Nation


This site, produced by the Dine Citizens Against Ruining our Environment, is an all-Navajo organization that focuses on alternative uses of natural resources and mitigating the effects of uranium mining and forestry on the Navajo Nation. The site provides information about the history of uranium mining on the Navajo Reservation, the effects of radiation exposure on the human body, the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act, prevention of future uranium mining on the Navajo Nation, and a proposal to using geographical information systems technology to document the continued effects of uranium mines on the Navajo people.
