Meet Our Commissioners

 

Our Commissioners are highly successful individuals ranging in varied experience. They are appointed for staggered 5 year terms by the Principal Chief and confirmed for appointment by the Tribal Council. The Commission is a separate and independent body from the Tribal political structure and maintains this independence by operating under a separate fully funded budget and ordinances from the Tribe.
