What Happens Next
Thank you to all who took action! President Biden will designate Baaj Nwaavjo I’tah Kukveni – Ancestral Footprints of the Grand Canyon National Monument, answering calls from tribal leaders to permanently protect nearly 1 million acres adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park.
What Was At Stake
For years, the toxic legacy of uranium and hardrock mining has contaminated sacred springs and drinking wells on the ancestral lands of Tribal Nations rooted in the iconic landscape of the Grand Canyon.
Now, a coalition of 11 Tribes whose modern-day reservations stretch across Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Nevada is calling on the Biden administration to permanently protect more than 1 million acres of their homelands surrounding Grand Canyon National Park as Baaj Nwaavjo I’tah Kukveni Grand Canyon National Monument.
