2021 American Indian Caucus Day, February 24, 2021

Every year, the Utah Division of Indian Affairs hosts its annual American Indian Caucus Day, an event where legislative, state, and Tribal leaders meet to discuss issues important to Tribal governments. Caucus Day builds upon efforts by state and Tribal leaders’ commitment to improving state-Tribal relations. This year, we are moving to a virtual event, but we will still plan for a day filled with presentations on topics important to Utah’s Native American population. Tribal Leaders from Utah
