Bears Ears and Manifest Hegemony

We contemplate sacred terrain with: Angelo Baca, Native American documentary filmmaker, and Matthew Campbell, Native American staff attorney with the Native American Rights Fund ( ), as they take up their respective and varied efforts to preserve the recently designated Bear Ears National Monument in southeast Utah. They consider who is taking from whom, following the U.S. Interior Dept.’s recent closing of its comment period over the current administration’s intentions to roll back the 12/2016 1.35 million acre US Monument designation. If some of this makes you consider more deeply what is beneath the ground you live, work, and play upon; then mission partially accomplished.
