Nuclear Waste & Uranium


"This is not just about compensation. It is the right thing to do, it is the human thing to do and it’s our

responsibility to help out. Radiation contamination does not discriminate, it doesn't care.

We are all affected and we need to work together for a healing, just resolution."

​- Earl Tulley, Diné CARE Vice President and Board member of the National Indigenous Environmental Network.


The Navajo Radiation Victims Project is a major initiative of Diné CARE. Our work (which started as cooperation with the Uranium Radiation Victim’s Committee in Navajo lands) has led us into native and non-native communities in the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. 1998 was an important year for the efforts to bring compensation and relief to victims of radiation exposure on the Navajo Nation.
