Bears Ears National Monument Restored

Washington, DC...Today, President Joseph Biden issued an Executive Proclamation restoring Bears Ears National Monument, Grand Staircase-Escalante in southeast Utah and Northeast Canyon and Seamounts Marine National Monument on the New England coast. The protection of Bears Ears National Monument has been one of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s top priorities for the past decade. President Biden’s proclamation reverses the former administration’s controversial December 2017 revocation of the Bears Ears national monument designation, meant to protect what is widely considered some of the most culturally significant land in the American Southwest. The revocation removed nearly 85% of the monument, approximately 1.35 million acres of land.




President Biden’s Executive Proclamation marks a significant victory for the National Trust, which has been working in partnership with Native American tribes, conservationists and advocacy groups across the nation to protect the cultural and archaeological resources, cliff dwellings, paleontological resources, and scenic vistas of the Bears Ears region. The proclamation also serves as the latest chapter in a battle over the proper scope of the national monument that now spans three presidential administrations.

“Bears Ears National Monument has always been worthy of preserving because of the 12,000 years of stories it tells,” said Paul Edmondson, President and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “But over the last several years, this campaign has become more than just an opportunity to preserve history. It has become a fight over the future of national monument designations in this country and whether the Antiquities Act will continue to be an effective preservation tool. Today’s executive action is an important victory for all Americans who cherish this country’s rich cultural heritage.”

THE FIGHT FOR BEARS EARS

The National Trust’s involvement in the nation-wide campaign to save Bears Ears began in 2007. In its capacity as a national leader in the field of preservation, the National Trust provided strategic research and targeted advocacy to highlight the need to protect the important cultural resources of the region.

In 2014, the National Trust designated the area that became Bears Ears National Monument as a National Treasure, the category of Trust commitment that allows its most significant investment in a historic place. To continue to call attention to the importance of the area, the Trust placed Bears Ears on its influential list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 2016. Later that year, the Trust submitted testimony to a House Committee hearing and a joint letter to former President Obama – along with seventeen other preservation, conservation, and archaeology organizations – urging the President to certify a national monument designation for the area.

SECURING A VICTORY

On December 28, 2016, former President Obama invoked the Antiquities Act of 1906, the nation’s oldest legal protection for the historic features on federal public lands, to designate Bears Ears a 1.35 million-acre national monument and to establish the Bears Ears Commission, a management advisory group consisting of tribal representatives designated by the Hopi Nation, Navajo Nation, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah Ouray, and Zuni Tribe. This was the first time the Antiquities Act was used to establish a formal mechanism to include tribal involvement in federal decision-making about a national monument designated on ancestral lands.

Less than a year after taking office, former President Trump revoked national monument status for 85% of the Bears Ears National Monument land area to make way for exploratory drilling and mining, despite the significant threat to a range of cultural resources. By taking this action, former President Trump became the first president to claim that the Antiquities Act granted presidential authority to revoke national monument designations, a power that Congress has reserved for itself through the limited grant of executive authority included in the Antiquities Act.

In response, the Trust renewed its advocacy by joining a coalition of plaintiffs in one of three lawsuits challenging the revocation, and mobilizing its members to sign petitions, submit public comments, or email their members of Congress to protect the integrity of the Antiquities Act and the cultural resources at Bears Ears.

THE PATH FORWARD

While today’s Executive Proclamation marks a significant chapter in the Bears Ears National Monument story, it is unlikely to be the final one. Questions regarding the scope of presidential power granted by the Antiquities Act still remain. Interests opposed to the monument might challenge today’s decision in court, putting the area’s resources at risk again. Despite these challenges, the National Trust stands ready to continue the fight to preserve and protect the rich, irreplaceable cultural resources of Bears Ears. But today, we celebrate.

    Joe is trying to undo the damage done by the dotard.
    Trump thought that opening up public and/or sacred land to his mining buddies would be a great thing.
    Keep it up Joe.

          Who said anything about Trump and college football. Maybe I didn’t vote for Don. Maybe I have the shot.Just sad some can’t see the Ice cream eater is a embarrassment and a failure. He takes zero responses and responsibility as the POTUS. Like he is living the Truman show. And blames everyone but the man in the mirror….if he even recognizes himself. Maybe it’s the Brandon guy?

              And what's worse, he convinced his dotards to question whether the vaccination was necessary.
              400,000+ die while Trump is President. Those Americans that have died since January 19th, were for the most part, unvaccinated.

Yep.....He saved a park, but what about the price of gas, the Cartels firing over our border, illegals flooding in, unemployment ? You libs just can't seem to grasp the matters being ignored by the moron you put in the WH. You got a nice park back, now pay $5 a gallon to go there and oh, by the way, it will now cost you $10 for parking ! Republican administrations have never let our country be the laughing stock of the world like you're president and vice president. Have a nice day in the park.

    You keep bringing gas prices up.
    You seem to forget that Trump told OPEC and Russia that they should be charging more per barrel. Would be a good thing for the oil companies.
    It's not about supply and demand anymore.
    It's always been about greed though. Arabs getting richer. Russian elite getting richer. Oil monopolies getting richer.
