The Story of Place from the Grand Canyon Trust follows filmmaker Ace Kvale, writer Craig Childs, and Zuni tribe member Jim Enote as they dive into the canyons and cultures of the greater Canyonlands region, which includes Bears Ears, Canyonlands National Park, and Indian Creek. Their journey makes clear this region’s cultural significance—and how important many believe it is to protect it from resource extraction.
