It is not an accident that virtually all uranium production takes place on or near Indian land. Nor is it a coincidence that to date, more than 50 reservations have been targeted for waste dumps. Military and nuclear testing also takes place almost exclusively on Native lands. For instance, there have been at least 928 nuclear explosions on Western Shoshone land at the Nevada test site. Fifty percent of these underground tests have leaked radiation into the atmosphere.
