At Utah Diné Bikéyah
we Support healing and protection for people and the Earth
What We Do
— We Find & Fund
We are dedicated to amplify the voices of all Indigenous communities beyond Utah, and the four corners region. We believe there is power in every voice small and big. At UDB, we are determined to seek out every Indigenous grassroot organization and help lift them up.
— We Build Networks
At UDB, we firmly instill value in creating and maintaining relationships. We believe that every relationship we foster, we are connecting as brother and sister with love, support and trust being our core foundation. At UDB, we are family.
— We Strengthen
Since we have been appointed by the Obama administration in 2016, we have been dedicated to preserving and protecting the cultural and natural resources of ancestral Native American Lands to benefit and bring healing to people and the Earth.
— We Educate
The day you stop learning, is the day you fail. At UDB, we value knowledge at its highest level. Since the beginning of time, our Elders have been passing down precious information, that we deem “Traditional Knowledge”. Here at UDB, we are determined to pass these messages on to the future generations to better lift our Indigenous beliefs, histories and stories.
— We Provide Care
Even before the global pandemic, our organization has prioritized giving support to those in need. We believe everyone around us, is family and deserves a helping hand.
— We Consult
At UDB, we provide culture sensitivity trainings and social media consultation for those interested in supporting our mission.
What We Care For!
As we are incredibly grateful for the restoration of Bears Ears National Monument, we at Utah Diné Bikéyah continue to advocate for the expansion of Bears Ears to 1.9 million acres, the size necessary to meet local community needs.
Our mission is to “Preserve and protect the cultural and natural resources of ancestral Native American lands to benefit and bring healing to people and the Earth.” We believe this means restoration is about collectively rekindling our relationships to the animals, the mountains, and the winds who are the teachers and knowers of life.
The backbone of our organization and the foundation of our cause is the stories that our Elders pass down.
At Utah Diné Bikéyah, we value the exchange of knowledge.
Each year we prioritize listening to the voices of our Indigenous communities, as we go hogan to hogan and village to village, listening and highlighting the wisdom of those who came before us.
Elevating Indigenous voices
We at Utah Diné Bikéyah, are determined to elevate the voices of our Indigenous communities.
We believe that everyone deserves a seat at the table and should be recognized for what they can offer.
By amplifying the voices of our Indigenous brothers and sisters, we are mobilizing the leaders of tomorrow.
