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!
