Our Land Project
In January 2018, Krauss combined her passions for wild spaces, climbing, and music with the launch of Our Land Project ( ourland.
bandcamp. com). She wrote and recorded the protest song “Our Land” as a response to President’s Trump’s handling of national monuments and public lands. After a collaborative recording session, it quickly developed into a film project that follows Krauss and photographer Chris Vultaggio as they travel to Utah to tell the story of Bears Ears and its people. They spent a week with the leadership of Utah Diné Bikéyah, a nonprofit devoted to supporting indigenous communities in protecting their ancestral lands. “The struggle in Utah is about more than just protecting breathtaking views and access to climbing; it’s about respecting and conserving thousands of years of Native American history and culture,” Krauss says.
