Utah Diné Bikéyah (UDB)


Utah Diné Bikéyah (UDB), in and around the Bears Ears National Monument lands of southern Utah, has built enduring relationships among local elders, traditional knowledge holders indigenous farmers, and food sovereignty partners for planning and developing a healthy future for the indigenous people who live there. After conducting an assessment of local food systems, UDB is applying local elders’ findings into cultural actions including plant walks by elders and youth to harvest wild foods, storytelling, workshops on preparing traditional foods, and traditional hunting where youth learn traditional teachings around wildlife and land management. UDB is also continuing its action research and outreach on the “Four Corners Potato” that is native to southern Utah and the Bears Ears region.
