Last week President Joe Biden hosted a signing ceremony at the White House restoring protections to hundreds of thousands of acres in Bears Ears National Monument in southern Utah. It was a hugely important moment for several Southwestern tribes who’ve long advocated for the reversal of former President Donald Trump’s 2017 order to slash the monument’s size by 85%. Hopi Vice Chairman Clark Tenakhongva was one of several tribal leaders to join President Biden for the signing, and spoke about its significance with KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius.
