Also Monday, another lawsuit filed by the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) challenges the proclamation that takes away about 85 percent of the Bears Ears National Monument, also in Utah. It would divide it into two smaller areas - Indian Creek and Shash Jaa (Navajo for "Bears Ears"), the White House confirmed in a written statement.

Trump's order reduces the size of the iconic Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, where numerous dinosaur fossils have been found.

"Some people think that the natural resources of Utah should be controlled by a small handful of very distant bureaucrats located in Washington, and guess what: They're wrong", Trump said Monday in Utah.

90 percent of U.S. public lands are open to oil and gas leasing and development; only 10 percent are protected for recreation, conservation and wildlife. You know how to protect it.

Over 4000 people gathered in protest December 2, on the stairs of the Utah State Capitol Building.

"People are attracted to areas that have a special status", Roberts said.

A petition addressed to President Trump has been set up on Care2 to speak out against this decision. "We've fought to protect these places since we were founded and now we'll continue that fight in the courts".

A year ago, the Obama administration took the extraordinary and long-awaited step to designate Bears Ears National Monument in Utah. Their actions actually kept many Native Americans from practicing "their most important ancestral and religious traditions" on the land, Trump said. While past presidents have used the Antiquities Act to protect unique lands and cultural sites in America, Trump is instead mangling the law, opening this national monument to coal mining instead of protecting its scientific, historic, and wild heritage.

History shows that when the federal government grants, sells or otherwise gifts federal land to states, 70 percent of the land is sold to private interests, jeopardizing public access.

"These are tribes that have historical differences that don't typically ally", Branch said.

Until the designation of Bears Ears, our sacred lands were under constant threat. These lands have incredible healing qualities and peace-based qualities. While the tribes did not get everything they desired, the national monument designation (and protection) was a major and long-awaited victory. But as I said earlier, this is not the last we will hear about this issue.

Conservation and national monuments go hand-in-hand. Members of the intertribal coalition collect plants and water from the Bears Ears region for cultural and medicinal ceremonies. "An attack on one national monument is an attack on every national monument". The clergy prayed together on the land, and Gaffney said she offered her own prayer of gratitude for the diverse group it brought together.

If Trump could articulate a sensible reason for his actions, he would deserve a listen.

In addition to Trump, the lawsuit also names Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke and acting director of the Bureau of Land Management Brian Steed as defendants.

But the State of Utah and Senator Hatch have decided what kind of State they want, and the President is happy to oblige.
