SJMA is honored to host Andrew Gulliford, professor of history at Fort Lewis College, award-winning author, and photographer. Andrews will present his latest work, Bears Ears, Landscape of Refuge and Resistance. Afterwards, he will open the floor for discussion as well as leave time for a book-signing. (Light refreshments will be served.)
Gulliford’s engaging narrative explains prehistoric Pueblo villages and cliff dwellings, Navajo and Ute history, impacts of the Atomic Age, uranium mining, and the pothunting and looting of Native graves that inspired the passage of the Antiquities Act over a century ago. The book describes how the national monument came about and its deep significance to five native tribes.
