After three Anglo teenagers murdered three Navajo men in Farmington, New Mexico, investigative journalist Carrol Cagle presented this five-part radio series called “Navajo Country.” In this segment, he talks about the industrial exploitation of the Navajo Nation, after the National Indian Youth Council confronted Navajo Tribal Chairman Peter MacDonald about coal gasification plants on the reservation.
