The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce their newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”
The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.
The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfill the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.

Traveling around using Google Street Maps is always an interesting experience and you don’t even need a car, plane, taxi, lodging or fuel. Not only can you look around in places you have never been before and possibly never will be, you never know what you will come across. From what appears to be UFO sightings to ghostly personages lurking in alleyways, bikini clad girls, places you may never dare drive thru on your own. It’s always a fun way to pass some time and discover something new!
