Every year the Utah Division of Indian Affairs (UDIA) invites state and tribal leaders, legislators, community members and partners to attend our annual America Indian Caucus Day at the Capitol. Caucus Day provides an opportunity for state government to maintain and strengthen its relationship with Utah’s eight sovereign tribal nations by encouraging discussions between state and tribal leaders.
Please join us at our annual American Indian Caucus Day at the Capitol on Monday, February 6, 2017, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Utah State Office Building. We will provide more information as details are finalized.
The 2017 American Indian Caucus Day is being held in the Utah State Office Building, which is the building behind (north) the State Capitol. Enter through the main entrance located on the south side of the building. Take the elevator to the basement. Please remember to check-in at the registration table.
