Our Mission

What we do

“As a department we oversee employee compensation, benefits administration, recognition programs, employee relations, complaint investigation, recruitment and hiring, orientation, training and employment law compliance.”

The Human Resource (HR) management involves recruiting people for positions with the Tribe. An Indian preference policy is in place. The Tribe sets professional qualifications standards for each position and hires the most qualified applicant. Retention of employees is an important management, as well as financial consideration in HR relations. Employee benefits, training opportunities and flex-time schedules are examples of how we attract and retain valuable employees.
