Our Tribal Youth Camp will be closing due to air quality concerns. Staff will be working on calling parents and vendors.

Please plan to pick up your child as soon as possible and no later than 9am on Tuesday August 21.

The only applications being processed this week due to the closure are July Food Assistance and any submissions that are considered Emergencies in nature. The housing department will pledge all utility bills. Education will process any tuition payments that have a due date this week.
All other submissions will not be processed until next week.

Due to poor air quality, per Tribal Council directive, we will be closing our administration offices today (Monday, August 20) at 2 PM and remain closed through Wednesday, August 22, 2018. We expect to resume operations on Thursday, August 23, 2018. 

Directors and Managers, please pass this message along to your employees. Those departments with essential services, that may have appointments scheduled, please provide those services and then you will be free to leave once those appointments are complete. 

We share with prayers and sadness the passing of beloved Tribal Elder Elmer Eugene Assman. Elmer was born September 10, 1932 and passed away on August 16, 2018. He served eight years in the United States Air Force and was honorably discharged.

We will share details regarding services at a later time.

It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of a Tribal Elder. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the family. Once the family allows us to release the name, we will provide an update with details.

Out of respect, per Tribal Council directive, we will be closing our administration offices at noon today.  Those departments with essential services that have appointments scheduled will provide those services and then close once those appointments are complete.
