Native American Village
- Representational Structures
- Relocated in 2009
Our Native American Village was created in conjunction with the Utah Division of Indian Affairs and various tribes. It represents the five indigenous tribes that inhabited the area that became Utah. Those tribes consisted of the Ute, Navajo, Paiute, Goshute and Shoshone. Each had its own territory, as indicated on the map, as well as its own culture, traditions, and language. Those differences were due in part to the diverse climate and geography of Utah.
