Annotation:
This article explores the unsuitability of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund (RAGS) and later documents that provide guidance for estimating exposures received from uburban and agricultural activity patterns and lifestyles for typical tribal communities whose members pursue, at least in part, traditional lifestyles. These lifestyles are derived from a long association with all of the resources in a particular region. The authors interviewed 35 members of a Columbia River Basin tribe to develop a lifestyle-based subsistence exposure scenario that represents a midrange exposure that a traditional tribal member would receive.
