Description

The Native American Youth Awareness Forum on Nuclear Issues will bring together Native American youth together with elders active in nuclear issues surrounding the Nevada National Security Site (formerly the Nevada Test Site) to communicate the history and values of tribal involvement around the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS).
Who should attend: Native American youth in high school, college or considering college with an interest in helping the people carry on the work of protecting the land and people of the Great Basin from nuclear threats and hazards?
What to expect: The event is intended to immerse the participants in the history of U.S.. nuclear development and its impacts upon Native Americans living in communities surrounding the NNSS. We will share our experiences and responses to the adverse health consequences known to be plausible from exposure to radiation in fallout from nuclear weapons testing. We will provide a Native American perspective to development of the proposed high level nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain. Participants will have opportunities to engage one-on-one with presenters to foster collaborative relationship, research and support.

From Ian Zabarte, Newe Sogobia (Western Shoshone)

Het ‘Native American Youth Awareness Forum’ zal Native Amerikaanse jongeren samenbrengen met oudere activisten over de nucleaire kwesties die de Nevada National Security Site (voorheen de test Site), omringen.
Zij zullen praten over de geschiedenis en waarden van tribale betrokkenheid rond de Nevada National Security Site (NNSS).

Native Amerikaanse jongeren uit het secundair onderwijs en studenten van de universiteiten, die mee willen werken tegen nucleaire bedreigingen en gevaren voor de bescherming van het land en het volk van de Great Basin.

De bedoeling is om de deelnemers bewust te maken van de geschiedenis van de nucleaire ontwikkeling in de VS en de impact hiervan op Native Amerikanen die in de gemeenschappen leven rond de NSS.
Ervaringen en response zullen gedeeld worden op de negatieve gevolgen voor de gezondheid, waarvan bekend is dat ze te wijten zijn aan blootstelling aan straling in de fallout van de testen van nucleaire wapens.
Er zal een Native Amerikaans perspectief geboden worden voor de ontwikkeling van de geplande hoog -actieve opslagplaats voor kernafval op de Yucca Mountain.
