California Low Level Radioactive Waste Transportation Study
The California Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Project was an assessment of areas under consideration for a possible waste disposal facility in the Mojave Desert. The ethnographic study which is presented in the two reports was mandated by both federal and state law. The ethnographic study focused on Native American responses to the proposed development. This study was conducted in three phases. The first phase involved a detailed literature search to identify the culturally affiliated tribes and cultural resources. The second and third phases involved tribal consultation and ethnographic interviews.
