For decades the Navajo Nation has been explored and mined for Uranium. Its legacy is deadly and has immediate and long-term disastrous effects on the health and welfare of the Dine people. The waters are contaminated with radionuclides; the land and air are also contaminated. 

Chris Shuey is well versed; having lived and studied 30 years the effects of Uranium mining and milling on Navajo. Chris will share with us his knowledge and will speak about the “First” Navajo Nation wide Birth Cohort Study.
