LETTER: Nevada gets a new national monument

Consider that all of the United States is sacred land that was lived on freely by the indigenous people — until the Europeans came over and took most of the land.

Indigenous citizens deserve to have their sacred sites returned to their care. National monuments do just that. As a wonderful bonus all Americans can enjoy the “Spirit Mountain,” aka Avi Kwa Ame.

And a note to Gov. Joe Lombardo: You were not consulted because you were not governor when the negotiations and decisions were going on. Congratulations on becoming governor.
