The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Program (RECA) is looking for individuals who may qualify for a claim. If you would like more information, or need assistance filing a claim, please contact Denise Begay (928) 255-3477, or Julie Holiday (435)-444-0171. The event will take place at the Kayenta Recreation Center in Kayenta, AZ on January 18, 2011.
The RECA Program will host an event on Tuesday, January 18th at 10AM at the Kayenta Recreation Center. The event will also feature a screening of the award-winning documentary “The Return of Navajo Boy.”
The Return of Navajo Boy also helped trigger a federal investigation into uranium houses and led the Department of Justice to pay out a $100,000 RECA compensation check to a former uranium miner featured in the story. A new epilogue shows how the film and Groundswell Educational Films create news and rally supporters.
