The poisoning of tribal lands is a well-known fact and has been going on for decades. Mentioning an 8-year period shows you're trying to pin it on Obama, a typical right-wing claim. Of course both you and William Tell are ignoramuses.
Do you live in Nevada on or near the area cited? Do you follow traditional Native ways? If not, then you know nothing.
Kind of hard to gain sympathy for your cause when you play the Lefts fake political witch hunt right out of the gate. But that speaks volumes about the writer herself. What have the Conressmen from the state done for these people? What happened in the previous administration to help (8 years)?
"As a result of existing contamination, tribal members in certain areas are reluctant to hunt and collect pine nuts, both staples of the traditional diet, says Johnny Bob, medicine man and traditional chief from the Yomba Shoshone, who live east of the mountain." Hmm. I don't think very much hunting or pine nut collecting occurs on the Nevada National Security Site (formerly the Nevada Test Site); soon to be the home of the repository and interim storage site at Yucca Mountain. Maybe nearby? Will your millennial kids and grandkids hunt or collect pine nuts? Really? Regardless, maybe in a million years or so the groundwater radiation levels will ever so slightly increase, according to the NRC's last update to the Yucca Mtn Environmental Impact Statement. I doubt the hunters or pine nut collectors will notice. But that's in a million years. We'll check back with Johnny Bob then, of course.
