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.
