Native Americans in national costumes, alongside demonstrators with banners reading "Save Bears Ears", "Protect Wild Utah" and "Hands off Utah", called for the monuments to be preserved.

Trump had asked Zinke to reassess the status of more than two dozen monuments established since 1996.

But the plan faces opposition from environmentalists and tribal leaders, who have decried it as illegal and an affront to Native Americans.

The plan would cut the overall size of Bears Ears from 1.35 million acres to 201,397 acres and Grand Staircase-Escalante from almost 1.9 million acres to 997,490 acres.
