Autumn Martinez
Moving statement from an articulate 20 year old Diné (Navajo) youth from the Crownpoint area (near Grants) whose family has faced the devastating health effects of Uranium mining. As many promote nuclear energy as a "clean" alternative they ignore the direct health impact on native peoples. Hundreds of mining sites remain unrestored and proposed Uranium "leach" mining threatens to poison the scarce water supplies of the Diné. Autumn Martinez expresses her plea for youth to become active in stopping new mining.
