Description


An important new collection of Native American writers essaying the cultural significance of Utah's Bears Ears landscape.
--THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

In support of tribal efforts to protect the Bears Ears, Native writers bear testimony to the fragile and essential nature of this sacred landscape in America's remote red rock country. Through poem and essay, these often-ignored voices explore the ways many native people derive tradition, sustenance, and cultural history from the Bears Ears.

To us, these places represent more than grass, hills, mountains, and trees...they hold the links to our past and our future. --Martie Simmons, Ho-Chunk

The fifteen contributors are multi-generational writers, poets, activists, teachers, students, and public officials, each with a strong tie to landscape and a particular story to tell. Willie Grayeyes, Chairman of Utah Din Bik yah, shares his ancestral ties to the Bears Ears. Klee Benally, Din activist, musician, and filmmaker, asks, What part of sacred don't you understand? Morning Star Gali, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer at Pit River Tribe, speaks to the fight for cultural preservation. The fifteen contributors speak for the Bears Ears and elevate the conversation around tribal sovereignty and sacred places across the US.
