Indian sites in Utah nominated to historic register
The Bureau of Land Management has nominated 63 sites along Nine Mile Canyon in Utah for placement on the National Register of Historic Places.

The canyon is known for rock carvings and paintings that were created by Ute people who lived in the area. The BLM wants to nominate up to 800 sites there for the register, the Associated Press reported.

Utah has been the focus of a major investigation into the sale and theft of Indian artifacts. At the recent White House Tribal Nations Conference, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the probe is far from over.
