The Fairpark Community Council recognizes and respects the relationships that exist between many Indigenous people and their traditional homelands. We acknowledge that our neighborhood is located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in the Salt Lake Valley, on the sacred lands of the Goshute, Navajo, Paiute, Shoshone and Ute people. We honor the original ancestors of this land and offer respect to all that live in our community.
