Navajos plead for feds to keep hands off sacred Bear’s Ears region
Outside environmentalist pressure groups and Hollywood elites are pushing federal government effort to grab sacred lands from the Navajos in San Juan County, Utah.
OPPOSE the Bear’s Ears land grab. Please sign the petition.
This brief video discusses the proposed Bears Ears National Monument from the perspective of San Juan County Navajos. These people have used this land for generations, picking berries, cutting firewood, gathering herbs, hunting, and performing religious ceremonies. A monument designation will threaten their access to these resources and change their way of life. We hope this video gives a voice to the people of the Aneth and Oljato chapters and helps preserve their traditional uses of the Bears Ears Mountain and surrounding area.
You can stand with the San Juan County Navajos and all Utahns by signing our petition telling Pres. Obama to leave the Bears Ears alone! Go here to sign the petition: http://sutherlandinstitute.org/news/2…
