Native American

Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk

Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk 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.
