Description: The valleys, mountains, and deserts of Utah have been home to native peoples for thousands of years. Today, six Indian tribes in Utah are recognized as official entities: the Northwestern Shoshone, the Goshutes, the Paiutes, the Utes, the White Mesa or Southern Utes, and the Navajos (Diné). Chapters on each of the tribes look at origin stories, religion, politics, education, folkways, family life, social activities, economic issues, and important events. They provide an introduction to the rich heritage of Utah’s native peoples.
