Navajo Nation Will Join Other Tribes in Protest of Downsizing Monuments

Navajo Nation Will Join Other Tribes in Protest of Downsizing Monuments

Five Native American tribes have been protesting the White House this past weekend and today will be on the scene making their voices heard as President Donald Trump meets with Senator Orin Hatch in Utah to announce his decision to cut the Bear’s Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments into significantly smaller pieces, as much as possibly 85 percent. Navajo Nation leaders along with other tribes are ready to take the issue to court if the President goes ahead with this decision to shrink the monument designations which currently prevent new mining and drilling operations- and keep logging, grazing road building and recreational activities at a minimum.  Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has chosen a total of six national monuments in the nation to be reduced upon the President’s order.
