Following Bears Ears' Native Messengers

In response to the current administration’s decision to open up Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments to extractive industries, filmmakers Yeehaw Donkey, producer Andy Cochrane, and photographer Johnie Gall created the film Messengers. It follows 17 adventurers, three dogs, and a film crew as they run a 250-mile relay race across the desert in honor of the native messengers who used to travel this landscape by foot.
