12th Annual Governor’s Native American Summit

“Embracing Paths To Success”

July 20, 2017

Utah Valley University – Sorensen Student Center

About the Summit

The Utah Division of Indian Affairs celebrated a successful 12th anniversary of the Governor’s Native American Summit.  This year’s theme was “Embracing Paths to Success.”   The theme reflects our focus on working together to strengthen family and tribal communities in order to build a better future for Utah’s Native American population.

This year, we welcomed keynote speaker Jacqueline Pata, Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). She is a member of the Raven/Sockeye Clan of the Tlingit Tribe and is the 4th Vice President for the Central Council of the Tlingit-Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. We were fortunate to have Ms. Pata as our keynote, as well as a breakout session presenter.

We are very grateful to all who sponsored the Summit this year and to all of our attendees!

Governor’s Native American Summit

The Utah Division of Indian Affairs is pleased to announce the Tenth Annual Governor’s Native American Summit.  This year’s event will be held on July 30th and 31st at Utah Valley University in Orem.

The purpose of the Summit is to build and strengthen working relationships between state and tribal governments, and its diverse network of community partners to address a multitude of issues impacting Utah’s American Indian population by addressing four critical areas: education, economic development, housing, and health.

Since its inception in 2006, the Summit has experienced significant growth and the Utah Division of Indian Affairs could not make this phenomenal event happen without the continued generosity and support of its partners!  Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2015 Governor’s Native American Summit.
