Role: producer

From the Project Description:
MediaStorm worked with award-winning Los Angeles Times photojournalist Gail Fisher to produce a four-part multimedia series entitled Blighted Homeland.

Excerpt from latimes.com:
From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were dug and blasted from Navajo soil, nearly all of it for America’s atomic arsenal. Navajos inhaled radioactive dust, drank contaminated water and built homes using rock from the mines and mills. Many of the dangers persist to this day. This four-part series examines the legacy of uranium mining on the Navajo reservation.
