Overview
The 2-million acre Bear's Ears area is unique because of its cultural, religious, traditional use, and ecological values. It is the first area proposed by Native people in the US for protection under the 110 year Antiquities Act. The Bear's Ears Intertribal Coalition Project at the Native American Rights Foundation is an unprecedented effort by five southwestern tribes to secure protection for this region in southeastern Utah and to ensure tribal involvement in its management. This grant will be used by the project to educate federal agencies about the need to protect this area, engage the media, and secure broad public support.

Since 1970, the nonprofit Native American Rights Fund (NARF) has provided legal assistance to Native American tribes, organizations, and individuals nationwide who might otherwise have gone without adequate representation. NARF has successfully asserted and defended the most important rights of Native Americans and tribes in hundreds of major cases, and has achieved significant results in such critical areas as tribal sovereignty, treaty rights, natural resource protection, water rights, and Native American education.
