Raising Awareness and Support for Tribal Lands

Chairman Cromwell was in Denver on Tuesday, October 23 raising awareness about the effect or a recent decision by the U.S. Department of the Interior that threatens the tribe’s reservation. A move that will mark the return to the Termination Era this country launched against tribe from the 1940s through the 1960s.

“The termination era has been reintroduced. It’s a very horrifying situation that’s happening with my Tribe,” said Cromwell.

But, despite that threat and its potential effect on the Tribe’s lands, Cromwell said our plans to expand education, healthcare, public safety and economic development remain in place.


Chairman's Column


Wunee keesuq Tribal family,

It’s hard to believe that we’re approaching the Thanksgiving holiday season and we’re still fighting to retain 1/10th of 1% of our ancestral homeland. Our ancestors gave the Pilgrims the land to establish Plymouth Colony. Yet here we are. The Tribe that started it all is once again forced to defend our heritage - a legacy that nobody disputes – against legal definitions.
