W. Ron Allen, Chairman, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe

Our properties are continuing to expand due to the need for more operational space and accommodations for both the casino and hotel operations, including expanding our tribal gaming regulatory operations, surveillance, IT operation and facility maintenance.
James Gessner

James Gessner, Chairman, Mohegan Tribe

As a tribe, we feel an obligation to support those that depend upon us – that starts with our tribal members of course, but it also means neighboring state and municipal governments we partner with, and private entities we do business with. We know that public health and economic security are intrinsically connected.
Charles Martin

Rececca Richards

Rebecca Richards, Tribal Chairwoman, Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians

Fortunately, we have a very experienced team that were involved in the development of our four casinos as well as several expansion projects along the way. That experience coupled with the new experience gained in managing a construction project during the pandemic, will continue to inform our operations going forward.
Bernadine Burnette

Melissa Darden

Melissa Darden, Chairman, Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana

There have been many challenges in 2021, namely staffing and keeping our community safe; but, there have also been opportunities as it relates to CARES and ARPA funds. Tribal nations have never witnessed such a large investment into Indian Country and it is unlikely that we will ever see this again in our lifetime.
Chief Roy Whitney-Onespot

Roy Whitney-Onespot, Chief, Tsuut’ina Nation

This is a time to remember and honor the ones who have passed, while learning more about injustices and generational impacts that are felt in all First Nations. We also are filled with hope that it can be an opportunity to advance reconciliation and renew relationships based on recognition of rights, respect, and partnership.
