(San Juan Record) Bears Ears National Monument designation disastrous for Utah grassroots Navajos


“As a Diné/Navajo woman, a resident of San Juan County and Commissioner, I speak in behalf of my constituents – the Grassroots Utah Navajos.

While we recognize the allure of deep-pocketed environmental groups with their promises and potential jobs on a Native American Advisory Council, we reject the notion that groups outside of San Juan County should dictate the future of these lands or pretend to speak for us and have our best interest, but we know better.
We can speak for ourselves. Environmental groups, do not insult our intelligence.”
