The people of Navajo Nation are haunted by issues with uranium-contaminated drinking water, housing dilemmas and negative effects of coal mines threatening to reopen. Many are suffering from multiple ailments such as cancer, infections and organ failure. Others are living in substandard ghousing conditions and have been for more than 40 years. For decades, they feel they have been completely ignored. They feel invisible to both the Navajo and federal governments.

They are the people of Navajo Nation; they are those who make up the Forgotten People organization.
