We loved seeing golden eagles when we were traveling out west. When we decided to create our Bears Ears inspired sticker, the golden eagle was our first choice for an animal to include!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #GoldenEagle #BearsEars #KeepItWild #ProtectWilderness #NationalMonument #PublicLands #NationalPark #ProtectAndDefend #Nature #Conservation #NaturalAreas #Desert #Utah #RedRocks #EndangeredSpecies

Love my job since it’s always a teaching moment all around, from #bearsears to being a journalist to being Diné to Indigenous rights and even connecting with non-Native youth about how brands like #supreme can rot them, lol. #bearsearsheals 🐻👂🏽

“Prayer for Shash Jáa”, 18”x36”, mixed media, 2018. Salutations, my loves. I have some exciting news! I was chosen a few days ago for a public art project in downtown Salt Lake! This is the first time I have ever entered anything like this and I am absolutely thrilled that I was selected! This past year has been full of overcoming obstacles for me and the most daunting hurdles are the ones I fabricate in my own crazy mind. It was only a few years ago that I actually started feeling comfortable with calling myself an artist! So ridiculous...this has always been who I am and always will be. Anyway, I created this piece in honor of Bears Ears, Utah. On the left is the ancient and tranquil spirit of Bears Ears, humbled by a little Diné girl. She is burning sage and praying for the protection of this sacred being. I used a Navajo rug pattern overlay to symbolize the connectedness of everything: the land, the sky, the people...we are all one. The little girl honors the sacred site even without touching it. In turn, the land honors and reveres her.

“To me there is an enchantment in these dry canyons that once roared with water and still sometimes do, that absorbed the voices of those who came before... Here I find something of necessity. Were I to discover that I could not walk here again, something essential would be missing from my life.” ~Ann Zwinger #grandgulch #bearsears #protectbearsears

Around this time last year I created this Sad Bear drawing in response to the decision to reduce the Bears Ears National Monument. Anger was all over the internet. I was angry too, but after digesting it for a while, I realized I was much more saddened by it than enraged. Since then, I’ve thought more deeply and sincerely about how we as humans affect the land, use our limited resources, and approach recreation. . Sometimes it seems like a daunting task to think about responsibility, and that can lead to either ignorance or deep depression — but I think more moments of honest expression, even expressions of sadness, are valuable and necessary. . At first I didn’t think anything I did could possibly have any impact. But the drawing kind of took off. I printed them on shirts, and donated the proceeds to the @accessfund because they know how to do that political thing way better than I do. Corporate donors who have way more money than I do were matching donations and ended up quadrupling the amount. So in total a little drawing I made on a sad morning was able to generate over $1600 for a cause I believed was worth it. This is not a story I tell because I think I accomplished a great thing. It’s more of a story of how something small can grow with the help of many. A year later, I’m still really proud of what we did as a community. Fighting any kind of big power is hard and feels like there is no end, but I hope we can take the small joys and celebrate them, honestly. . Thank you @ashnm_ for this amazing photo and to everyone who supported that project! ❤️❤️❤️
We’re currently listening and learning from our knowledge holders about traditional foods and ties to the #BearsEars landscape from elders throughout the Four Corners region. Stories = Native Truth. #bearsearsheals #standwithbearsears #honortribes 🐻👂🏽pc: @cynskn

Day 344, of my something that is emerging. Meditate, then paint. See what emerges.
This ancient story etched into the rock 4,000 to 6,000 years ago is just one of thousands of cultural sites at risk between #BearsEars and Canyons of the Ancients national monuments. The current Administration's unfettered "lease it all" agenda to give oil & gas companies anything they want on public lands risks sacred sites in one of the most dense archaeological areas on the planet. FCM is hard at work in the boring but important policy/legal arena to speak up for these little known resources. Please consider supporting this work with a year end contribution!

Will Foster pulling down on a lovely warm Saturday afternoon in December 2018 on Three Strikes You’re Out 5.11 in Indian Creek. Thanks to Will Foster for doing the hard work. I’m just hanging around 80’ off the ground. 😃 #indiancreek #climbing #bearsears #trailrider33 #bearsearsnationalmonument #backcountryexperience #blackdiamondclimbing #desertclimbing #desertcrackclimbing #pineneedlemountaineering @trailrider33 #iphone7plus #blackdiamondcams #blackdiamondclimbing #climbing #visitutah #petzel #petzelhelmet #petzelgram #climbingzine
With these wins and redrawn boundaries, we’ve got solid momentum heading into 2020. No Mitt at the top of the ballot either. #REDTOBLUE #Democrat We passed all three citizen-led ballot measures: Medical Cannabis, Medicaid Expansion, Anti-Gerrymandering We retained every single seat across the state and gained eight: McAdams (US-Congress), Riebe (UT-Sen), Harrison (UT-Rep), Shurtliff (UT-Rep), Stoddard (UT-Rep), Hobbs (SLC Rec), Sloan (Grand County Attorney), Grayeyes (San Juan Commission) We flipped San Juan County, which now holds a Native American majority with two of three Commissioners being Navajo. After decades of voter suppression, this reflects a historic shift that’s been a long time coming in southern Utah. This could also be big for Public Lands, as this group strongly opposes Trump’s executive order to shrink Bears Ears. #Progress #BearsEars #Utah #BlueWave
