There are tens of thousands of Americans living without clean, running water on the Navajo Nation today. This is because decades of uranium mining have contaminated the majority of water sources on the reservation.

VICE News travels to New Mexico to find out how people are coping, and if there is hope for the future.

In this excerpt, VICE News reporter Neha Shastry spends time with Ben Lewis, a former uranium miner who has been living without running water in his home on the reservation.
