110 years after the Antiquities Act was created, the Bears Ears landscape of southeastern Utah, a most deserving landscape, was protected as a 1.35 million-acre monument. This marks a significant moment in history for the five Native American Tribes - the Hopi, Navajo, Ute Mountain Ute, Zuni, and Ute Indian Tribe - that asked President Obama to permanently protect a landscape with such cultural significance.

Now is the time to show our appreciation to President Obama for designating the Bears Ears National Monument - and ask our Senators to support and defend Bears Ears going forward.

President Obama has proclaimed Bears Ears as America’s newest national monument. 

This protection is 110 years in the making. For the first time since the Antiquities Act was passed in 1906, Tribes joined together and asked the President to declare a Monument on their behalf, and to give them a say in the management of the landscape.

The new monument will celebrate Native American relationships to the land, and preserve indigenous traditional access while remaining open for all Americans. Its proclamation is a tremendous step toward healing past injustices suffered by Tribes.

But there are some Utah politicians who want to see Bears Ears National Monument undone. Please take a moment to tell your Senator that you support Bears Ears National Monument and want to see it protected forever!
