Publisher's Description

Printed in an edition of 250 handbound copies with a letterpressed cover.

Bears Ears zine reveals the beauty and importance of this significant cultural landscape. Native Americans have continuously inhabited the mesa tops, evergreen forests, and redrock canyons of the Greater Bears Ears area for 13,000 years. This high desert landscape includes over 100,000 archaeological sites from various populations; cliff dwellings, kivas, rock art images, and burial grounds.

Bears Ears zine 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.

Bears Ears zine is a self-published, limited edition photozine of 250 copies featuring 30 black-and-white photographs of the sacred, cultural landscape within the Greater Bears Ears area.

Includes an essay by Terry Tempest Williams and a poem by Denae Shanidiin.

A percentage of proceeds goes to Utah Diné Bikéyah.

Signed copies will be signed by Russel Albert Daniels.
