The SHAWL Society continues to educate people as it holds Newmont Mining Company, owner of the Midnite Mine Superfund Cleanup Site, accountable to remediation agreements to clean up radioactive contamination and toxic wastes on the Spokane Indian Reservation by 2025.
The contamination resulted from uranium mining there from 1955 to 1965 and from 1968 to 1981.
Deb Abrahamson founded the SHAWL (Sovereignty, Health, Air, Water and Land) Society in 1994 to educate people and advocate for cleanup. Her daughter, Twa-le Abrahamson-Swan, helps lead the effort.
