Problem

Complex claims procedures

Incidence:

Navajo families eligible to be compensated for the early deaths by cancer of their family members through uranium mining, said that compensation is being slowed or prevented by an application system that requires multiple documents on health, occupational and family history -- documents that in many cases were never kept by men and women raised in a traditional system of undocumented tribal law and customs. Many were never educated and do not read.
