10th Annual Governor’s Native American Summit: “Hozho Speaks – Love, Peace, Beauty, and Harmony”

The Annual Native American Summit began in 2005 at the request of then Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr., as a way of facilitating a discussion between state government, business and tribal leaders to address and develop solutions to various challenges that American Indians living in Utah face.

This year, the Utah Division of Indian Affairs celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Governor’s Native American Summit at Utah Valley University July 30-31, 2015.

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.
