Bears Ears zine
Bears Ears zine
Bears Ears photozine reveals the sacredness, beauty, and mystery of this significant cultural landscape. For 13,000 years Native Americans have continuously inhabited the mesa tops, evergreen forests, and redrock canyons of the Greater Bears Ears area. This high desert landscape includes over 100,000 vulnerable archaeological sites from various populations; cliff dwellings, kivas, rock art images, and burial grounds.
Bears Ears photozine emphasizes the Antiquities Act proposal created by a five tribe coalition - Navajo, Uintah & Ouray Ute, Hopi, Zuni, and Ute Mountain Ute Nations - in 2015, the coalition released the proposal that protects and preserves the cultural and natural resources inside Bears Ears. The core of the proposal is focused on spiritual and land stewardship.
