Description Transcript (40 pages) of interview by Danielle Endres with Forrest S. Cuch, on December 17, 2008
Abstract Cuch (b. 1951) was born in Roosevelt, Utah. A member of the Ute Indian Tribe, he currently serves as the director of the Division of Indian Affairs for the state of Utah. Cuch begins by discussing his upbringing and experiences crossing between the "Non-Indian world" and the "Indian world." He then moves to a discussion of the controversy over high-level nuclear waste storage on the Skull Valley Band of Goshutes Reservation. Cuch emphasizes the sovereignty rights, fairness issues, and hypocrisy in the controversy. This discussion expands to a more general discussion of the role of American Indians in Utah and the United States. Throughout the interview, Cuch discusses the importance of knowing and understanding history. Interview is part of the Nuclear Technology Oral History Project. Interviewer: Danielle Endres
