Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People

The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce its 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.

Fighting Fulmers

Boxing Gloves, Fulmers, South Jordan, Utah, West Jordan, Utah Salt Lake City Exhibit, Display

Gale Center Museum Display

The eleven acres of Fullmer property lay astraddle the common boundary of West Jordan and South Jordan. The children went to school in West Jordan and to church in South Jordan, never making much of a distinction between them. They lived in a tiny one-bedroom home with no indoor plumbing or electricity, but it didn’t matter. What mattered was boxing.

This family’s famous journey began when the Fullmer boys noticed an outdoor boxing ring at Marv Jensen’s house on the way home from school. Gene began training at six, and all of the boys trained daily. This display demonstrates the work ethic, close family ties, training, and positive philosophy of a great family.

Utah Museum of Fine Arts - University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, Salt Lake County

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is Utah’s primary cultural resource for global visual arts. It is unique in its dual role as a university and state art museum. It is Utah’s only visual arts institution that collects, exhibits, interprets, and preserves a comprehensive collection of original art objects.

Thanks to the generous patrons, local and national foundations, the University community, and the citizens of the State of Utah, the UMFA’s collection now encompasses 5,000 years of artistic creativity. Since the mid-1900s, when the collection was around 800 objects, it has grown to over 17,000 art objects.
