Due to the recent changes with the Coronavirus, the scheduled Spring Membership Meeting set for April 18th of this year has been rescheduled for Saturday April 25th via live stream.

The live-streaming will hopefully take place from the Lodge Room at the Government Center.  It will start at 10AM as usual, with a couple of directors , a representative from the Resort to give a brief update and the Tribal Council being invited to attend if possible.
There will be no live audience, but if possible might be able to have interactive discussions if possible via internet.

The Ogema Meet and Greet on Friday evening most likely will not happen, but it hasn’t been ruled out yet.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance through this ever-changing time.
Ogema Larry Romanelli
