Edge of Morning: Native Voices Speak for the Bears Ears by Jacqueline Keeler

In Edge of Morning (Torrey House), edited by Jacqueline Keeler, Native writers bear testimony to the fragile and essential nature of Bears Ears, a sacred landscape in America’s remote red rock country. Through poem and essay, these often-ignored voices explore the ways many native people derive tradition, sustenance, and cultural history from the Bears Ears. The book’s 15 contributors are multi-generational writers, poets, activists, teachers, students, and public officials, each with a strong tie to landscape and a particular story to tell. Willie Grayeyes, chairman of Utah Diné Bikéyah, shares his ancestral ties to the Bears Ears. Klee Benally, Diné activist, musician, and filmmaker, asks, "What part of sacred don’t you understand?" Morning Star Gali, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer at Pit River Tribe, speaks to the fight for cultural preservation. The contributors speak for the Bears Ears and elevate the conversation around tribal sovereignty and sacred places across the United States.
