From: email@example.com (Glenn Campbell, Las Vegas) Date: Wed, 9 Apr 1997 23:16:06 -0800 Subject: Shoshone Nation land claims at NTS Subject: Shoshone Nation and NTS Date: Wed, 9 Apr 1997 23:50:07 -0400 (EDT) From: [withheld by request] Saw a blurb in the 4/09/97 newsbriefs on clari.local.nevada about the Shoshone Indians taking their claims regarding the NTS to the UN. ------ (NEW YORK)- The Shoshone (``shoh-SHOH'nee'') Nation government has appealed to the United Nations for help in seeking the return of the Nevada Test Site... which it claims as part of its ancestral lands. In its appeal the Shoshone Nation claims the U-S has raped the land... allowing mining and more than 900 nuclear explosions on the site. The United States does not recognize the Shoshone Nation government and considers the appeal frivolous. -------- A search of the Las Vegas Sun website... http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/search?START=1&FREETEXT=shoshone yields several articles regarding the Shoshones and their claims against the NTS and their anti-nuke activities. This is probably old hat, but still interesting.
