Nevada’s Next National Monument?

What is Avi Kwa Ame or Spirit Mountain? “It’s a place of energy,” said Linda Otero, director of the Aha Makav Cultural Society. “It’s where our God lives.”

Multiple conservation groups and 12 Native American tribes are working to create Nevada’s 4th national monument to protect land that is under threat of industrial development. Thanks to Tiffany Lane at KSNV News 3, Las Vegas , for reporting on this important topic.
