Friday, October 8, 2021

Tribes in Nevada are among those turning to the federal government to permanently protect almost 400,000 acres of land with a National Monument designation.

The area known as Avi Kwa Ame is sacred or culturally significant to at least 10 tribes.

There’s pressure from developers who want to establish wind energy farms that supporters of the protections say would significantly harm the beauty and cultural importance of the landscape.
