SKULL VALLEY, UTAH -- "Leon Bear picked up some of the chalky soil of the western Utah desert and crushed it gently in his palm. A light puff from his lips and it vanished into the air, leaving a ghostly powder covering his hand.
"That's why they call us the Goshutes," he said with a smile. "Our name means 'dusty people,' because my people always had this dust on them when they roamed the desert country."
Bear is not content to allow his economically disadvantaged 124-member
bands to lanquish in the dust any longer. As chief, he wants then to have computers, better education, a health clinic, a decent water system, new homes and jobs.
