LAS VEGAS -- The Native American Forum on Nuclear Issues begins tonight, Sunday night, with reception. Two day conference of Western Shoshone, Paiute, Navajo, Supai, and more, discussing the U.S. policies of genocide and the nuclear industry. From the Nuclear Test Site and Yucca Mountain on Western Shoshone lands, to the Cold War strewn radioactive tailings on the Navajo Nation, and the ongoing targeting of Navajoland and Native communities, the U.S. government has long wanted to make Indian country a nuclear dump site.
