An intensive psychiatric treatment center for youth ages 8 to 17, Provo Canyon School examines its students’ needs and strengths to provide them with the counseling and support services that will help them thrive. Provo Canyon School also contributes to local organizations such as the Utah Native American Cultural Institute.

The Utah Native American Cultural Institute exists to preserve the history and culture of the five Native American tribes of Utah. Each of these five tribes, the Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Shoshone, and Ute, has a distinct heritage with its own sacred places and traditions.

As the first organization dedicated to the preservation of the diverse Native American traditions, the Utah Native American Cultural Institute hopes to raise the funds to build a cultural center. This center will include an art gallery, conference rooms, an educational theater, a round dance hall, powwow grounds, and a trading post. It will also host a recording studio and native radio station to help broadcast information about the culture of the five tribes.
