Begay gets mining story

MTV looks at opposing views of uraniumOne of MTV's 51 nationwide citizen journalists traveled to Crownpoint Feb. 28 to get the scoop on proposed uranium mining in the community.

Christine Begay, Nakota/Arikara/Navajo, traveled from Albuquerque with her compact digital camera and a two-member camera crew in hopes of talking to people on all sides of the issue.

Begay, 23, said her attempts to set up an interview in advance with the proposed developer, Uranium Resources Inc. of Lewisville, Texas, were unsuccessful.

Not so with adversaries of the mining, which included a sampling of local students and local activists.
