comments from beartrace:

Create a special services district ("SSD") in San Juan county with a charter & bylaws that only permit the Dine/Navajo to operate Bears Ears under terms specifically set forth in the charter/bylaws protecting the land. Perhaps the State would back the SSD. At a minimum the Dine/Navajo people could almost immediately begin official stewardship of the land which would the provide a strong argument against the Federal over reaching bureaucracy.
