Tribal Council

Governing for the Future

Our tribal government determines the direction that allows our people to prosper. The Tribal Council oversees all issues related to economic development, culture, community giving, and the health and well-being of our people. Our goal is to put in place programs that allow us to secure our future for generations to come.
