Mildred Miles Dillman Ute Indian Museum was a museum located in Pioneer Village. It was once Located north of the Blacksmith. It displayed clothes and implements of some of Utah's earliest people. The artifacts were collected by Mildred Miles Dillman while her and her family lived near the Ute reservation in the Uintah Basin in the early 1900s. Mildred taught among the Ute Indians for more than 30 years. She spent many years teaching children at the White Rock Indian School near Roosevelt, Utah. Naomi Dillma Lunt, Mildred’s daughter, remembered her mother inviting the Indians to lunch every week. Mildred would purchase beaded work and finely woven baskets. Mrs. Dillman gathered an impressive collection of hand-crafted Ute artifacts. The collection was passed to her daughter Naomi.  In 1987, the collection was given to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures.
