We are among the Women of Bears Ears — Indigenous women who support our families and communities in the protections of ancestral lands. We come from Diné, Nuche, Pueblo and other allied Native Nations. From these Southwestern lands, twin buttes rise; they are known as Bears Ears.

Elouise Wilson, Mary R. Benally, Ahjani Yepa and Cynthia Wilson are among the founding members of WomenOfBearsEars.org, which supports the restoration of Bears Ears National Monument.
