>>New report outlines Historical Role of Native Americans in southeastern
>>The Westinghouse Electric Corporation, contractor to the U.S. Department
>>of Energy's Carlsbad Area Office, has published a Native American
>>History in the area of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).
>>This report begins with the earliest known human habitation of
>>southeastern New Mexico and documents Native American history through
>>Spanish, Mexican, and the American rule.
>>Little is known about the nomadic groups that inhabited southeastern New
>>Mexico before the Spanish expeditions. During historical times, this
>>portion of the state was used by the Comanche, Jumano, and several bands
>>of Apache. The primary residents are the Mescalero Apache, whose
>>history is discussed.
>>Although the report was written for the WIPP, it can also be used by
>>educators for teaching or reference material. Key topics are:
>> Protohistoric Period
>> Historic Period
>> Spanish Colonies
>> Reservation Life
>>The WIPP is designed to safely and permanently dispose of tranuranic
>>waste in an ancient, stable salt formation 2.150 feet underground. The
>>facility currently is in an environmental compliance permitting phase
>>with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the New Mexico
