Veronica Taylor

Veronica Taylor is a member of the Nez Perce Tribe and grew up along the Columbia River near the Manhattan Project site at Hanford. Taylor observed first hand the side-effects that resulted from the radiation in the area, including its impact on wildlife and the Indian people themselves. Taylor also advocates for some programs today that are designed to help future generations rediscover some of the land and cultural traditions lost as a result of the Manhattan Project.
