Navajo Celebrates HRI Ruling

Gallup Independent - “Eric Jantz of New Mexico Environmental Law Center, which represented Eastern Navajo Diné Against Uranium Mining, or ENDAUM, said the decision is important ‘not only for our client, but for Indian tribes as a whole.’”

“I think that the court’s decision was pretty common sensical. If that corner section of land isn’t Indian Country, I can’t imagine what would be,” Jantz said. “You’re looking at a place that’s within a community within boundaries of a chapter that’s 97 percent Navajo. It’s very clear that the subsistence economy and the culture in the area is Navajo. To say there is anything other than a Navajo community is absurd.”

Cost Analysis of Uranium Mining Sparks Debate.

Nov 15, 2008 - by Eric Jantz - Mike Bowen’s Nov. 7 commentary, “Uranium mining study is based on wrong data,” is inaccurate and misleading in three important ways.

First, the Arrowhead report that Mr. Bowen touts as nonbiased is actually based on assumptions provided by the Uranium Producers of New Mexico. The authors of that study have publicly conceded that they did not question the assumptions they were given.
