For centuries, Southern Utah’s Bears Ears region was home to Indigenous people who used its plants, animals and other natural materials to make their food, homes and culture. But while the area is rich in history, it’s also rich in oil and gas, and renewed calls for resource extraction threaten its natural and cultural landscape. This moving exhibition of contemporary and past art explores the beauty of Bears Ears and the ways in which Indigenous peoples have learned and healed through their fight to protect it. Haffenreffer Museum, Manning Hall, 21 Prospect Street.
