Tribes celebrate new national monument designation
Native Americans tribes in the United States are celebrating the designation of a new national monument in Utah.
The Bears Ears National Monument sits on over a million acres across the ancestral homelands of five American Indian tribes.
A five member tribal commission will oversee the monument as well as an advisory committee of local government officials, business owners and private landowners.
