The Indian Advisory Committee advises the Natural History Museum of Utah on a broad range of issues affecting the use, care, study, and interpretation of Native American collections. Members advise and/or participate in planning programs and exhibits that meet the needs of Indian communities in the Intermountain West and expand knowledge about the indigenous people, cultures, and histories of this region. The Indian Advisory Committee was integral in the development of the Native Voices exhibition, and continues to keep the Museum apprised of contemporary issues and ideas as we revise and update the narratives shared in that space.
