Bears Ears Monument Souvenir Shop 
How it Happened

Tamy Jaramillo, Yak's Cafe owner and chef, had a dream. This website, and its exclusive products are the result of that dream.

In her own words, it happened like this:
.
"A little history. I had a vision/dream.
.
I was coming home from a barrel race, thinking about how to enhance the business. I thought about extending hours. But, that would benefit only me. Then, this idea appeared.  
.
People are always asking questions, directions, and general information about the Bears Ears. We did our homework, and found very few souvenirs, or products for the Bears Ears National Monument. Those that exist don't portray the the area or the Native American connection. 
.
I was told to employ Chris Blackhorse, (Navajo Artist) to create a line of authentic and incredible Bears Ears souvenirs.

.
I contacted Chris, and told him my dream/vision. Chris, being a visionary artist, brought it to life - way beyond my expectations. With a small town business owner's dream and an exceptional artist, we've created an original, unique, hand-crafted, one of a kind line of Bears Ears National Monument souvenirs.
.
The line includes, these pottery bears, paying tribute to the wildlife and the Bears Ears Buttes, t-shirts that are another original Chris J. Blackhorse design, water bottles, drink koozies, and shot glasses. 
.
The bears and t-shirts (our most popular products) are all produced in San Juan County, Utah. Enhancing the local economy, providing more jobs for local residents. 
.
Tess Bayles, worked in her parents' local t-shirt shop (Bears Skins Custom Ink) to help create Yak's Cafe's Bears Ears t-shirts. 
.
The last part of the dream, to market worldwide, came in to play on the 15th of January 2019. Our products are available in house, online at: Yaks.cafe, Etsy, Amazon, and Ebay."
.
All designs are exclusive to Yaks Cafe.
.
We are so proud and excited to be offering the ONLY authentic Native American and locally sourced Bears Ears National Monument souvenirs, in the world.
