This report shares the outcomes of a two-day gathering of archaeologists who work or have worked within what is now Bears Ears National Monument or in southeastern Utah more generally. Our gathering sought to tap their pool of professional knowledge to help land managers and the general public better understand the scope and meaning of archaeology in Bears Ears National Monument and the surrounding region. We also sought to identify a group of researchers who were interested in engaging with issues related to research on and management of Bears Ears National Monument’s archaeological resources going forward. This pro bono effort is solely advisory.
