Game on the Montana prairie. | On Common Ground

Regina

Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk, head councilwoman of Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, and her family have lived in the American southwest since time immemorial. 

To honor her place and that of her ancestors, she helped lead five Native American tribes in an historic campaign to protect the lands surrounding the Bears Ears Buttes in Utah. As a member of a tribe that has lived successfully in this arid climate for millennia, she expresses the hope that traditional knowledge can help guide the management of our public lands in the 21st Century.

“Privatizing the lands shows a form of greed.”
