ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the conflict over ancient claims to Mount Taylor in New Mexico, which is sparked by a tribal attempt to protect the land. Jim Enote, executive director of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center, states that an entire cosmological process is maintained by going to the site which is sacred and a gathering for certain plants and minerals. Marita Noon, executive director of the nonprofit organization Citizens' Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE), notes that an emergency meeting had many uranium company attorneys disapproving of the decision by the New Mexico Cultural Properties Review Committee to make Mount Taylor a protected traditional cultural property (TRP).
