Ute Indian Tribe Fights to Protect Reservation from a Modern Day Indian Land Grab

Ft. Duchesne, UT - Sept 13, 2016

In the next few weeks Congressman Rob Bishop will attempt to push through the U.S. House of Representatives the first Indian land grab in over 100 years. H.R. 5780, the Utah Public Lands Initiative, proposes to rollback federal policy to the late 1800's when Indian lands and resources were taken for the benefit of others. In a startling transparency, Congressman Bishop plans only one hearing on this 215-page bill with about 129 other land management proposals in the obscure Subcommittee on Federal Lands.
