A coalition of American Indian tribes including Colorado’s Ute Mountain Ute, are working to protect lands in southern Utah. They’ve proposed a new, 1.9-million acre national monument called "Bears Ears" that borders the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe reservation in southwest Colorado. Regina Lopez Whiteskunk represents the Ute Mountain Ute on the Bears Ears coalition. She told Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner that the proposal includes tribes as part of the plan to manage the monument.
