Land Acknowledgement

The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art acknowledges that it sits on the land of the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Goshute, Shoshone, Paiute, and Ute peoples. We recognize the enduring relationships between Indigenous peoples and their traditional homelands. Indigenous peoples have been living, working, and residing on this land since time immemorial. UMOCA respects Utah’s Indigenous peoples, the original stewards of this land, and we respect the sovereign relationship between tribes, states, and the federal government. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this land, and we honor and respect the Indigenous peoples still connected to the land on which we gather.
