Devils Tower, Wyoming's giant monolith

This stone tower seems to come straight from another planet, and it actually served as the backdrop of a famous science fiction movie. This is Devils Tower.

    Everything they say, here is not fact.

    It is named the Bear's Lodge, one of many traditional names and holy grounds that belong to the indigenous First Nations of the Great Plains such as the Lakota, Dakota, Cheyenne, Crow, Arapaho, Shoshone, and Kiowa peoples. They have their own history, creations, and traditions that are tied to this land for millennia. When the Wašíču (Lakota for white men) began to invade this territory, they saw many Indigenous people practicing their ceremonies and songs at the site. The racist Wašíču misunderstood and rebranded Indigenous cultures as "devil worship" and so they renamed it the "Devil's Rock". That's prejudice and sacrilege on the colonizer's part. This mountain is sacred. In one of the creation stories, a small group of young children were chased by an enormous bear. As they fled, the children climbed onto a boulder and prayed for the Creator to save them. The rock grew as big as a mountain, and the children transformed into stars. The enormous bear was desperate to catch them, and instead it made those marks on the sides of the mountain we see today. The stars in the sky were later associated with the Pleiades. https://www.nps.gov/deto/learn/historyculture/sacredsite.htm

    There was a language interpretation error and Devil stuck. Thanks to Trump much of the land selected to be saved there has now been reduced. This is the 1st time a President has ever taken land away from National Monuments other Presidents sought to preserve! Sadly whole Monument areas were selected and are simply gone forever!

    Our very 1st National Monument has shrunk in land size because President Trump signed an executive order taking away many National Monuments other Presidents wanted to conserve. Now many are ransacked for artifacts because they are no longer protected! Since 1906 he is the only President to do so! Nearly every President added areas to be protected. Trump just takes them away.
