  • Cibola County opposes Mount Taylor cultural listing

    By Heather Clark
    Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    The Cibola County Commission has come out against an emergency listing of Mount Taylor in the State Register of Cultural Properties, a designation requested by five American Indian communities that consider the mountain sacred.

    Commissioners voted 4-1 May 1 to oppose the listing in what was described by attendees as a “very heated” and sometimes racially charged meeting attended by hundreds of people. The Cultural Properties Review Committee had approved the designation for Mount Taylor in February.
