The 9th Annual Governor’s Native American Summit: “Building a Sustainable Future Together”

The Annual Native American Summit began in 2006 at the request of then Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr., as a way of facilitating a discussion between government, business and tribal leaders to develop solutions to various challenges that American Indians living in Utah face.

Every year since 2006, the Utah Division of Indian Affairs sponsors the Annual Governor’s Native American Summit bringing together Utah Tribal Nations, community members, educators, organizations, students, Legislative members, and public officials for a two-day event.

This year, we are celebrating the 9th Annual Native American Summit at Utah Valley University on July 30-31, 2014 in Orem, UT.  Mark your calendars and come join us in Building a Sustainable Future Together!
