Land Acknowledgement

At Bandelier National Monument, we serve as the proud stewards of a part of what is the ancestral and traditional lands of at least 23 tribal nations, and we recognize the long history of this land and the connections that people of these nations have to it to this day. It is our honor to serve as the current stewards. We seek to ensure that we manage all aspects of the monument in a way that demonstrates respect and reverence for our tribal partners and their ancestors, with the understanding that their cultures, lifestyles, religious beliefs, and traditions continue to be shaped by their ties to the natural and cultural resources of the monument.
