Across the country, sites sacred to Indigenous communities are at risk due to environmental changes, population growth, tourism, and natural resource extraction. As part of the museum’s Living Earth celebrations, several community members discuss their efforts to protect sites of cultural significance. Dr. Rosita Kaaháni Worl (Tlingit) talks about X’unáxi, or Indian Point, in Juneau, Alaska; Dr. LilikalaKame‘eleihiwa (Native Hawaiian) shares updates on Mauna Kea, Hawai‘i’s highest mountain; and Angelo Baca (Diné/Hopi) provides an update on the status of the restoration of Bears Ears National Monument in Utah.
