This is a three-day event. For participants planning
to attend overnight,
be advised that this is a traditional peace camp. Be

The issue:
Private Fuel Storage (PFS), a "limited-liability"
consortium of commercial
nuclear utilities wants to site a "temporary" above
ground dump for 40,000
metric tons of high-level nuclear waste on the
ancestral and reservation
land of the Skull Valley Band of Goshute Indians. This
proposed project
continues to enflame bitter controversy within the
Skull Valley Band of
Goshutes and between various governmental and public
citizen groups. The
Skull Valley Goshute Reservation is located
approximately 45 miles
southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah.

This issue is in a critical stage. At the request of
Margene Bullcreek and
Corbin Harney, the Shundahai Network Board, Office
Staff, and Field Staff
are preparing for three days of events in Skull Valley
October 8-10, 2004.
The purpose of this event is to educate, to
demonstrate opposition to this
project, to give concerned interests an opportunity to
offer public
testimony on this issue, to learn, and to strategize
