Tabiona is a town in Duchesne County, Utah, United States. The population was 149 at the 2000 census.



Tabiona was named for a Ute chief, Chief Tabby-To-Kwanah[1]. The nearby town of Hanna was named after the first postmaster, William P. Hanna. The town proper is located near the Duchesne River, though much of the Tabiona valley's population live in the rural areas within 5 or 6 miles of the town.


Because of its small population, Tabiona houses all 12 grades in the same building. Classrooms serve students from kindergarten through 12th grade, though grade school students attend classes in a separate wing of the school building. Tabiona High competes as a 1A school in athletics and the school mascot is the Tiger. The school colors are purple and white. Tabiona has a rich tradition in basketball. Both the boys' and girls' teams have enjoyed success under coaches Lee Gines and Doug Price respectively, winning region and state titles. Tabiona was crowned 1A champion in girls basketball in 2007 and won its most recent 1A titles in boys basketball in 1997 and 1999. Tabiona also competes in sports such as girls volleyball and baseball. Student numbers are too low to field teams in other popular sports such as football and soccer.


The Tabiona/Hanna area is a well renowned mule deer hunting spot. Every fall hunters flock to this Northeast region of Utah to try and score trophy bucks. Many families continue the tradition of deer hunting in the area and have done so with much success. Recently many private landowners in the area have begun restricting hunters from shooting game in their fields. Also, Ute Indian tribal lands are off limits during the hunt. Both of these facets continue to negatively affect the overall likelihood of being successful within town limits and thus forces hunters to focus their hunting time in areas such as Tabiona Mountain or West Fork. Elk hunting and fishing are also very popular pastimes in the area.


The dominant religion in Tabiona is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The local church building is about half a block from the high school.
