We, at the Bennion Center, acknowledge that the land on which we operate, and which
is named for the Ute Tribe, is the traditional and ancestral homeland of the Shoshone,
Paiute, Goshute, and Ute Tribes. We recognize and respect the enduring relationship
that exists between many Indigenous peoples and their traditional homelands. We respect
the sovereign relationship between tribes, states, and the federal government, and
we affirm the University of Utah’s commitment to a partnership with Native Nations
and Urban Indian communities through research, education, and community outreach activities.
