Native American Teaching Artist Roster

Native Teaching Roster


Contemporary Native artists demonstrate the significant contributions of Native peoples' who exist in the past and present through their performances, demonstrations, and lectures. Native American Teaching Artists are one of the best resources for your classroom when seeking to provide accurate and authentic voices in your student's learning experiences.


Our initiative can connect you to these individuals through our partnership with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.


Bring a Native artist to your school!


The Utah Division of Arts and Museums (UDAM) has curated a Native American Teaching Artist Roster that lists Native Artists that you can invite to your classroom. Use the link below to peruse the list of artists. Next, talk with your principal, District Arts Coordinator, or school arts team about funding to appropriately compensate these artists for the time, knowledge, and expertise.


If you need further assistance, you can write a grant to UDAM to help you secure funding for the artist. Bringing an artist to the classroom is a great way to amplify the authentic voices of Native Americans in your learning space.
