Native America, Discovered and Conquered » Blog Archive » American Indians and uranium poisoning In what  might be an example of environmental and economic racism, I believe that more than 50% of the uranium mining in the United States occurs on tribal lands. Tribal lands make up only 1% of the land mass in the lower 48 states.
