Ute Tribe divided on new Camp Hale NMon: some support, but others decry lack of consultation
The Ute Native American tribe, whose ancestral lands formed the newly designated Camp Hale National Monument, had mixed reactions to the Biden administration’s announcement of the designation this week.
In a statement, the Ute Indian Tribe Business Committee said the administration “moved forward with a monument on our homelands without including us. They talk about tribal consultation, but their actions do not match their words. We cannot support a monument on our homelands that does not include the tribe.”
