Dancing Kids

Carrizozo, NM ---- These nice kids are dancing in a festival parade in Carrizozo in Lincoln County, NM. Carrizozo is a small, New Mexico railroad town that received a large part of the residue from the world’s first atomic bomb test. They have joined the Tularosa Basin Downwinders to share stories about the test’s health effects as advocates work to gather more information about how the 1945 test affected generations of Hispanic and Native American residents. Over the years many have suffered rare forms of cancer.
