Bears Ears Protected

On Friday, August 11, 2023, United States District Judge David Nuffer of the United States District Court of the District of Utah granted motions to dismiss the cases challenging the Bears Ears National Monument designation. Unfortunately, this decision recently was appealed, but NARF is committed to standing strong with the Tribal Nations and so many people who fought tirelessly to protect this one-of-a-kind landscape and all that it contains!

By joining NARF and tribal governments in asserting, defending, and advocating for Native rights, you made all the difference this year. At NARF, we appreciate every fellow advocate for tribal sovereignty and the continuation of Native cultures, societies, and peoples. Thank you for standing strong for Native rights in 2023 and beyond.
