• All Pueblo Council of Governors Announces Support for Protection of Cultural Resources and Sacred Sites in Southeast Utah

    December 1, 2014

    Last week, the All Pueblo Council of Governors (APCG), a group representing 20 Pueblo Governors from New Mexico and Texas, met in Albuquerque and unanimously voted to support a resolution for the “permanent, long-term protection of cultural resources and sacred sites on public lands in the Greater Cedar Mesa (Utah) region through designation such as a National Conservation Area or a National Monument.” The National Trust sought the support of APGC because many of the sites in the Cedar Mesa area are significant to the Pueblos as the homes of their ancestors. The area is also important to other tribes including the Hopi, Navajo and Ute. This resolution helps to strengthen the case for protection by demonstrating that the depth of support for this nationally significant place extends across many cultures and across state boundaries. We hope this message about the importance of protecting cultural resources will also be carried to Washington, DC and conveyed to the administration as part of the 2014 White House Tribal Nations Conference on December 3.
