Willie Grayeyes appointed to BLM Utah Resource Advisory Council
Utah Diné Bikéyah Board Chairman Willie Grayeyes was appointed to the BLM Utah Resource Advisory Council by the U.S. Interior Department. Members of the Utah Resource Advisory Council (RAC) offer recommendations on management of 22.9 million acres of federal public lands in Utah. According to the BLM, “Council members are selected for their ability to provide informed, objective advice on a broad array of public lands issues and their commitment to collaboration in seeking solutions to those issues.”
Willie joins the 15-member Utah RAC as the sole Native American representative on the council. UDB congratulates Willie on this tremendous honor!
