I was in the room when the Senate committee voted 5 to 2 to pass HRC 11 and 12. (Which, if successful, will dismantle Bears Ears.) The entire room was full of people speaking in favor of keeping the monument, including five Native Americans. Only three people spoke against the monument. Keeping the monument is the will of the people. Whose will are these senators representing?
