15 Nov Respect and Protect Native American Heritage
In the early 90’s the month of November was deemed ‘Native American Heritage month’ to help recognize the significant contributions and growth that have been made by Native Americans. Tread Lightly!, along with our dedicated partners, would like to encourage you to take time this month to learn and appreciate the rich traditions and ancestry of Native Americans and help us protect ancient artifacts, rock art and petroglyphs.
We recently teamed up with the Utah Bureau of Land Management on a campaign called Respect and Protect. This campaign aims to educate the public about how to protect cultural, historical and archaeological resources on federal, state and tribal lands from looting and vandalism. You can help by reporting vandalism on public land to your local land management agency.
Help us see these amazing relics into the future by sharing our message. Use the hashtag #RespectandProtect when sharing these sites on social media and be an on-the-ground advocate when on public lands.
