All Washingtonians aspire to the same basic things - safe communities, excellent schools, decent jobs, clean air and water, good health and roads and transit that make travel easy. We want our kids to have more opportunities than were given to us. And we value a culture where neighbors help neighbors.
Washington's tribal government leaders are making investments to improve the lives of people on their reservations and throughout our state.
Washington's tribes have a substantial impact on the economy in communities throughout the state. Tribal governmental agencies and enterprises sustain thousands of jobs for tribal members and non-tribal members. The purchases of goods and services benefit local private businesses, and generate millions of dollars in state and local taxes.
Washington's tribes employ more than 30,000 people.
