Utah Unlikely to “take back” federal lands

Utah Unlikely to “take back” federal lands

This is a fantastic editorial piece out of the Deseret News from Robert Bennett, a former US Senator from Utah, about the need to leave federal lands alone in which “the original owners were Utes and Navajos”. Notice it was published a few days ago, but the words and brief history he gives from an experienced perspective are valuable to the general public but also those of us who are attempting to retain our rightful claim to our lands, culture, history, and traditional sacred places that need protecting in the face of governmental, capitalist ventures, and natural resource exploitation. It is nice to see a reasoned and logical argument from another perspective than our own; we need allies to help us secure our traditional lands and keep them from being desecrated or otherwise wrongfully appropriated.
