  1. This is a fucking shame the Navajo (Dine ) people have to go to war with these corporations who are greedy and only want a profit. Big money and they dont care about people.

  2. same kinda stuff going down here in my province of ontario, canada. thousands of first nations peoples without water or basic sanitary conditions for decades now. its sickening. also come to findout ontario was apart of the manhattan project makes me sick. do your research people, history will reveal many truths. godbless.

  3. it's disgusting to see how the corporate and political elite treats minorities and underprivileged people in America. Often the US reminds me of a Third World country.

  4. No one else that is a major media source is covering this. I've known about this for weeks and not seen anything covering this that wasn't local news. Good for you VICE. It's the EPA's fault. I hope you mention that.

  5. Back in the 1950s before anyone understood how radiation effects the body, people though that the Navajo would soon be the richest tribe in the nation. Eisenhower thought the Uranium would provide energy "to cheap to meter" and entire towns sprouted up throughout the southwest built using radioactive mine tailing as construction materials. back then they didn't think about radon getting into houses or wells, they didn't know that alpha radiation could cause cancer, and to this day no one seems to know how to clean it all up.

  6. Hosea 4:3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

  7. Funny how a similar issue was covered by vice in Canada and the video had so many dislike but now its about America so its okay? Fuck, get your shit together and stop judging content based on its country.
