>>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).

>>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
>>Environment Department.
