Welcome to Salt Lake City!
Welcome to Utah!
Utah is home many outdoor recreation opportunities that attract people from all over the world, including skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and backpacking, rock climbing, spelunking and river rafting. Utah also hosts the Sundance Film Festival and has many landscapes that are favored by the film industry.
Utah has five Native American tribes which include Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Shoshoni, and Ute. A recent court case was won by the Navajo nation in Southern Utah, who comprise a majority of the population there, wherein the voting districts for the San Juan County commission and school board districts were reconfigured to allow for a more fair representation of Navajo voters.
Utah’s landscape is rich in environmental diversity. That landscape continues to be threatened by mining, toxic waste storage, air pollution from refineries, and efforts to build tar sands mines and nuclear facilities. Sacred lands, wetlands, and all life that calls them home are in danger by these activities and Utahans continue to fight to preserve the land, air and water. Local events at the ANM will include a focus on the effects that these threats have on the environment and all life that exists in it.
