Series of documents from the Big Mountain Support Group detail their attempts to get the EPA to enforce a presidential directive concerning pollution on reservations; residents on reservations in the Black Mesa area (Arizona) have been fighting some of the worst pollution in the country with little success; also at issue are land use disputes wherein coal companies and the Bureau of Indian Affairs are apparently attempting to remove Navajo indians from their land or make them sign leases; documents include descriptions of the poisoning of indians, letters written to and received from the EPA, a brief history of environmental exploitation on the reservation, news stories documenting the continued struggle and a letter of requests sent to a mining corporation which operates in the area.
