In Bears Ears Landscape of Refuge and Resistance, Dr. Andrew Gulliford synthesizes 11,000 years of the region’s history to illuminate what’s truly at stake in this conflict and distills this geography as a place of refuge and resistance for Native Americans who seek to preserve their ancestral homes, as well as the descendants of Mormon families arriving by wagon train in 1880. Gulliford’s engaging narrative explains prehistoric Pueblo villages and cliff dwellings, Navajo and Ute history, impacts of the Atomic Age, uranium mining, and the pothunting and looting of Native graves that inspired the passage of the Antiquities Act over a century ago. The book describes how the national monument came about and its deep significance to five native tribes.

Dr. Gulliford presentation will begin at 6:00pm on Tuesday, April 18th.  It will take place within the Multipurpose room.
