Tribal Leader Roundtable

Bernadine Burnette, President, Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation

We have had to navigate the impacts of the pandemic for the past 18 months, and unfortunately, it is not over yet. Our first priority has been to ensure the health and safety of our tribal members, guests and employees.

Greg Sarris, Tribal Chairman, Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria

The challenges have been to work closely with local and state officials to be consistent with COVID-19 safety requirements. The opportunities are largely in the area of increased guest services, food and hotel accommodations, and slot and table options.

Keith B. Anderson, Chairman, Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community

At the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), we have been fortunate to have an incredible team helping us navigate the uncertainties of the pandemic. The past year has required a lot of flexibility, creativity and perseverance.
