Dust in the Wind

Are we EVER going to stop abusing the First Americans? Indian reservations were always chosen by virtue of being the crappiest land they could find, which no one else wanted. I knew that when the U.S. discovered “strategic” deposits of uranium on Navajo land, they moved the natives elsewhere, but used them as cheap labor to mine the stuff, and left piles of tailings behind, which caused health problems for decades. I did NOT know about the uranium mines in Sioux country until I saw the following article on Indian Country Today, a great website which I recommend highly. Read it and weep.
