So, I was doing research on and old legend.
I start searching for trading post in southern
Arizona. On the webpage for old military forts
I click a link that takes me to :

The San Carlos Apache website

www.sancarlosapache.com...

The page says as of Jan 21st 2017 an Agent
Orange barrel has been found.
As of Sept 7 2017 no barrels have been removed.
Also noted on the page is thank you to the EPA and DOJ.

When you click the headline it takes you to the
San Carlos Apache home page /home.

So I took a screen cap and saved it.

Why was this not in the news anywhere?

When and Why were they buried on the Reservation?

So many questions and very little information.

Figured this was a ATS suitable subject to discuss.

Guess they have been finding barrels of Oil, Paint, Pesticides and other nasty stuff
for many years after doing a google search.

The MSM doesnt care about filthy stinking "Indian's" so they wont report on it. There aren't enough around anywhere near populations to stir up racial tensions. If the Apache want to get coverage they need to go drop it off in a black housing project, get the thing go viral then come out and say they carefully set it up all safe like just to get the thing going viral, and that'll learn em.

Curious whats actually still in it. It could be just plain old inert.... or it could be an abomination inside there.



They just need to call 1-800-454-8000

An old 55gal barrel. How was it determined to contain Agent Orange?

As you said, not really any information provided.

Is it possible that the chiefs were paid by the US government to dump those barrels on the reservation?

I know those guys are rich, I saw them on 'Westside Customs'.

I don't think the Apache Nation would put
that on their site without it being truthful.

Looks like it's a shaming tactic.

And a VERY Bold one at that.

On the barrel in the picture, the bung is missing so wouldn't that mean that drum is empty of said contents?

Why don't they just remove it themselves?

That is true and I wouldn't want to be standing
next to such a barrel.

That might not be the actual barrel.

I'm just reporting what I found by coincidence.

Your guess is as good as mine as a Sovereign Nation.

The land was given to them by the United States.

Don't think they had much Due Diligence involvement.

You mean the land was given back to them right?

And put it where? (assuming it is actually hazmat)

Take it to the EPA and dump in their big dumpster, or have it delivered to their front entrance.

Exactly , who knew we would F it up and give it back.

In Tucson the airport buried TCE well that worked
out well and leeched into the drinking water in
that area making a whole bunch of children sick.

We are very good and digging holes and putting
stuff we don't like in them.

It may not have been the same land that they originally occupied. My wife is a tribal attorney and she has done plenty of treaty rights negotiations for some Northwest Tribes for some of their fishing/hunting and land acquisition or use based on a tribe's usual and accustomed method and area of specified activity be it hunting or living or whatever.

She has been working on a culvert's case here in that has been going on for 15+ years to get Salmon number back up out here and reduce pollution in the tribes U&A fishing areas. Sometimes the gov't gave the Native Americans back "their" actual reservations but a lot of the time they moved them to remote areas or less valuable land.

Regardless, they were there first. The rest of it is bureaucratic bullish#t.

Edit to add: Still an interesting post.

Someone could keep it like in their garage or spare room or in an old van.

Then when the next " Haz-Mat Community turn in event" occurs take it down there.
When I see them touted on local news these events are often referred to as "Harzardous Materials Amnesty Day"

Unass that Barrel & Get some AMNESTY!!


That's a win/win Baby
