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!
