Utah Diné Bikéyah Urges Protection of Bears Ears at United Nations


“Indigenous communities all over the world, including in the United States, are seeking to protect our cultural landscapes. Bears Ears National Monument was reduced in violation of our human rights. If this action stands, it sends a signal that any protection of land sacred to indigenous peoples may also be at risk.” Angelo Baca, Community Resource Coordinator, Utah Diné Bikéyah, addressing U.N. Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York.
