The Skull Valley reservation is located in a remote, isolated area in western Utah about 35 miles south of the Great Salt Lake. The reservation is in a semi-arid valley. A portion of the Wasatch National Forest borders the reservation on the east. Goshutes inhabited part of the United States for thousands of years, before the Mormons, the Mexicans, and even the Spaniards. At their peak the Goshutes numbered about 20,000. Today less than 500 Goshutes remain, of which 124 belong to the Skull Valley Band.
