On March 20, the federal government is scheduled to auction off almost 41,000 acres in southeast Utah to oil and gas companies under expedited lease sales ordered last year by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. The push to lease these public lands would mean that archaeologists and Native Americans will not have a chance to fully document what's at stake. Carvings line a rock formation in the Nine Mile Canyon area of Utah. Such archaeological are currently threatened by the Trump administration's push to lease public lands.
