Native Americans Lead Water Poisoning

Native communities are constantly poisoned with toxic drinking water... so where's the media attention?

Polluted drinking water on Pine Ridge is just one of many environmental hazards currently plaguing Native lands and tribes today. 317 reservations in the United States “are threatened by environmental hazards, ranging from toxic wastes to clearcuts,” according to the Worldwatch Institute, an independent research organization known for its fact-based analysis of critical global issues.

However, Native American communities throughout the Western US have been fighting the same kind of problems for decades. The Navajo communities in particular are constantly being poisoned through the water supply as the byproducts of old uranium mines leech into their water sources. Reporter Brenda Norrell testifies that the situation in the Navajo nation is "more horrific than in Flint, Michigan," and has been going on for far too long.
