Biden vows protection for sacred mountain in Nevada, but doesn't proclaim it a NMon

WASHINGTON — President Biden pledged Wednesday that he would preserve the Spirit Mountain area in southern Nevada, which contains some of the most biologically diverse and culturally significant lands in the Mojave Desert.

“I’m committed to protecting this sacred place that’s central to the creation story of so many tribes here today,” Mr. Biden told a gathering of Native leaders at a White House tribal nations summit in Washington. “I’m grateful to so many of you that have led the fight to protect it.”
