FOUR CORNERS – DINÉ NATION – EXTRACTIVE INDUSTRY
As one of our investigative sites, Land Arts traveled to the Navajo or Diné Nation to survey the extractive industries in the region. For many decades, the lands of the Navajo have been disrupted and polluted through mining for coal, uranium, oil and gas. These processes have unsettled traditional ways of life and have caused great harm to the land and to the people. During our visit, three days were dedicated to traveling and investigating uranium, coal, and natural gas extraction.
