Nuclear Waste Dumps - Where They Plan to Put Them
Yucca Mountain is sacred land to the Western Shoshone. Development of this repository violates the 1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley.
So-called low-level dump sites are next to Hispanic communities near Sierra Blanca in Texas, and the Colorado tribes near Ward Valley, California.
The Canadian Government wants to store high-level waste on Cree and Dene lands in Saskatchewan.
NSP is the lead utility in consortiums that attempted first to dump nuclear waste on the Mescalero Apache in New Mexico, and now on the Skull Valley Band of Goshutes in Utah.
17 of 20 potential sites for federal interim storage of high-level waste were on Native American tribal lands.
