The Board of Trustees
Tribal affairs are governed by an elected body called the "Board of Trustees," which is elected every two years by the voting membership (General Council). A chairman presides over the Board, which consists of eight additional members (nine members total). The Board sets policy, makes the final decisions on tribal affairs, and takes a lead role in determining priority projects and issues. The Board conducts business meetings once a week (Mondays at 9 a.m., unless a holiday falls on that day), in addition to numerous work sessions with staff and special board meetings with external individuals and organizations.
Board members participate in various commissions and committees established to oversee specific tribal issues, such as education, natural resources, water, health and welfare, cultural resources, fish and wildlife, law and order, and more.
The current Board of Trustees will serve through November of 2013, when the next election will be held.
