Two Spirit & LGBTQIA+ Community

On February 22, 2020 the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake hosted the first annual Two Spirit Pow wow, an event celebrating our Indigenous Two Spirit and LGBTQIA+ community power and sacredness of their people. We are excited to continue to grow from this event to make our cultural gatherings a more inclusive space. Donate today to support our Two Spirit & LGBTQIA+ community!

We envision all Native peoples living balanced, prosperous, and healthy lives in diverse communities for Seven Generations.

Our Story

The Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL) first opened its doors as the Indian Walk-In Center (IWIC) in 1974, with the Utah Council of Urban Indian Affairs (UCUIA) offering social, educational and physical services for American Indians residing in the Salt Lake City and Wasatch front area.  Two years later (1976) IWIC mission was written, “To aid and assist Native American Indian people and to strengthen the family and community, respecting cultural values.” On January 1, 2012, an important shift took place, the name and mission of Indian Walk-In Center was changed to Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL), to better reflect the emgering needs and trends of Native Americans circular migration into urban settings.

Today

Our mission coupled with our vision statement reflects the current needs of Utah’s urban indian population. We are predominately funded through Federal and State grants and contracts, private foundations and individual donor based giving. UICSL devotes resources to support and develop accessible, culturally competent healthcare programs and services for the whole family. Additionally, we provide comprehensive limited primary health care services, behavioral health care services, preventative/health screenings, and social services in a holistic responsive way.

 Impact 

UICSL serves, on average 5,587 patients in Clinical Health and Behavioral Health per year. Our target population includes areas where approximately 26.3% of community members live at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, and where  25.7% of residents do not have health insurance.

We Count!

Native Americans have been the most undercounted Racial group in the United States. After 100 years of being unheard and undercounted we have made it onto the 2020 CENSUS as a “race.” To be counted means we get supported by Federal Dollars to increase support in our healthcare, public education, housing, community development, & much more! Click on the U.S. Census 2020 logo above to get counted on the 2020 Census! The count will end on October 31st. We encourage everyone to Be COUNTED this year on the 2020 Census!
