Food + Films
As a part of our commitment to education and stewardship, we will be showing a few short films that highlight the beauty of Bears Ears National Monument and the work being down to protect the area. Come enjoy some farm fresh tacos from Facil Taqueria and enjoy a few short films playing on loop throughout the market.

"On December 4, 2017, President Trump announced the drastic size reduction of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments in the largest elimination of federally protected land in American history. Trump had never stepped foot in either place. Now, the land that the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition had fought to keep safe has officially opened to extractive industries.
So, we did what we knew how to do. On January 13, 2018, we met in the Utah desert for an adventure. Then we filmed it."

Inspired by my love of wild spaces and in response to President Trump’s assault on our national monuments, I wrote “Our Land” as a protest song. The song led to a collaborative recording session and quickly developed into a film project, in partnership with professional photographer/producer Chris Vultaggio. Chris and I set out for Utah in efforts to expand the project and tell the story of Bears Ears and its people.
All proceeds from the sale of this song and related merchandise (via partners Bandcamp and Revolutions Per Minute) will directly fund the Utah Diné Bikéyah’s legal effort to reinstate protection for the entire Bears Ears National Monument. Utah Diné Bikéyah is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to preserve the culturally significant ancestral lands of indigenous communities.
