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 extra scene, VICE News correspondent Neha Shastry joins Darlene Arviso — known locally as "The Water Lady" — on her daily rounds as she delivers clean water to the community.
