“Bears Ears Is Healing Shirt!”

It is the ancestral homelands of the Diné, Hopi, Zuni and Ute peoples, who are key to land management and conservation efforts at Bears Ears National Monument. Bears Ears is also where many of our Native peoples emerged, cite Creation Narratives that shape their cultural world views and ceremonies, where over 100,000 archeological sites remain under threat from looting for cash-profits and where the public’s health is at higher risk from exposure to the contaminants from the exhaustive energy. The “Bears Ears Is Healing” t-shirt is a collaborative collection between Utah Diné Bikéyah (UDB) and NativesOutdoors, a public-benefit company that elevates Indigenous peoples. Proceeds from the “Bears Ears Is Healing” t-shirts will go toward UDB’s Youth Programs.
