Mission & Vision

Mission Statement 

"Gawalla xa hamattalla"

Helping our people 

The mission statement is based on the traditional value and belief that our purpose in life is about "servitude" or "helping our people". In order for us to fulfull that role, it requires us, individually, to be the best leader that we can be, in order to truly be in the place of "helping our people". This is the cornerstone or foundation of our way of life - the potlatch.

The mission statement is further based on the belief that we respect and honor people and deliver services and programs maintaining the dignity of the people we work with.
