Zinke’s Bears Ear suggestion might have pleased the republicans but the tribal people are not welcoming the downsizing of the national monument of the Bears Ears national monument in Utah. Situated on an exalted area of about 1,351,849 acres (547,074 ha), the monument of Bears Ear has been there since ages and attracting an array of visitors to come and have a glance at this cultural space. But the recent proposal of limiting the area, by Trump administration does not seem to be accepted by the tribe coalition.
This is what Ryan Zinke has to say, “I have enormous respect for tribes, “This is working hand-to-hand with the tribes as I said I would do.”
Contrary to that the attorney at native American Rights Funds, Natalie Landreth says; “This was really just a cynical effort to distract Indian country from the devastating blow of reducing the size of the monument,” “Bears Ears is not for sale. It’s not up for trade.”
