Utah is home to five distinct American Indian cultures, each with a unique heritage that can be found among the state's many sacred places, dwelling sites, rock art locations, and museum exhibits. Utah is named for the Ute Indian tribe indigenous to the north/central portion of the state. The "Ute" name was derived from a Native American word that was spelled and pronounced differently by early Europeans, ranging from the Spanish "Yuta" to the fur trappers' "Eutaw."
