One week ago, many of us who value public lands were devastated to learn that Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante Nat’l Monuments would be shrunk and stripped of its protections. Many of you have heard from myself, @Im_NicoleMarie on this issue. But today, I feel that it is important we hear from someone else. A native woman. A woman who this land means a lot to. So, I hope you all take a few minutes to read about Jaylyn, @NativeWomensWilderness and what these lands mean to her and her heritage.
"You could say I'm a kid straight from the Rez. I grew up on the Navajo Reservation. I was adopted by an incredible woman who taught me how to love and explore the land. The land was our playground, the sticks were your swords, the canyons were your maze, and the cliffs were your wonder.
I was taught that I could do anything I wanted and what I really wanted was to climb mountains. But I had no one to look up to, so I grew up with the idea that only white women could climb mountains. I then began to scale the cliffs in my back yard. I then became a guide and a mountain bike race coordinator. And then I became the brown woman who climbed mountains.
Currently at @nativewomenswilderness we have started a movement called, ‘Whose Land Are We Exploring On?’ Right now it is an important time to ask this question. Did you know that Bears Ears is a sacred site to five major tribes, all of which have ancestral ties to the land for thousands of years. One of these tribes makes an annual pilgrimage to pick berries that only grow within the monument, for sacred traditions. For me, Bears Ears brings about nonverbal feelings for me. How do you explain the feeling you have with the land of your ancestors, that DEEP feeling?
The past week has been devastating to me. I also feel in some ways feel traumatized. It is 2017 and yet our lands and rights are still being taken away from us? This is our land and another note to historical trauma and colonization where once again our land is being segregated and split up.
Through NWW we are exploring what these lands mean to us, the land that we love. Please join us while we share with you the ancestral history behind the lands you explore."

That time we went Mt biking in Chile down a ‘road not traveled’... for good reason... We survived but the bike did not 😬

Turns out the buses only came once every 3 days on the backroads of #Patagonia, so we hitch hiked up to Futaleufu #roadlesstraveled

I've  created a group and hopefully an organization (in the future) called @nativewomenswilderness .  It will be in collaboration of Natives Outdoors and Woman's Wilderness, both based out here in Colorado.  My hope is to bring our Native woman together in celebration of our love for the outdoors.

I'm also hoping to begin the change of the outdoor stigma of what women should look like in the outdoor realm.  If you look at our outdoor industries, very rarely do you see any women of color, let alone a Native Woman.  I want to change this.  I also want this to be a place where other women can come together, to share their stories, to learn, and to be in admiration & support of each other.

I want more of our Native Women to be featured in the Outdoor Industry, for isn't this our playgrounds and Sacred Lands that's being portrayed, why not portray our Women playing in this beauty.

I got fire for a heart and a river for a soul. Where the ocean meets the forest, I'll forever fill my bowl 💚🌊🍃 •

After a frustrating day at the car shop and despite forgetting a tent, helmets, a lighter, a headlamp and sunscreen - & ending up with a SCORCHED face. The views from 12,276ft and all the way up were entirely worth it. Checking off Mount Adams ✔️ shout out to @janderson249 and @shaggydub for making the rally to pick our stranded asses up - you guys rock! . . . .  #girlgetoutside #wildwomansproject #alpinebabes #earthgirllifestyle #shewentwild #radgirlslife

If people say you're crazy, you're doing something right. I found the best kind of friends this weekend in the San Juan Mountains... @wildwomensproject #wildwomansproject #strapinventureout
