In 1992, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians developed a mission statement to reflect the Tribe's belief in positive growth and development of the community as a whole. The statement reflects our desire to promote a bright future that respects traditions, recognizes the power of education, provides a nurturing environment for our children and aims for success through current and future enterprises. It reflects goals the Tribe has established and is currently working to accomplish.
The Kalispel people are preparing tribal members and non-tribal community members to attend institutions of higher learning through the Kalispel and Cusick schools. Working with both children and adults, the system provides a well-rounded education that includes Tribal history and culture. Community members are involved in leadership at all levels and students are supported and encouraged to pursue individual and community goals.
We are highly successful business people. We have expanded our land base to create ample housing opportunities and meaningful employment for our people, many of whom are self-employed. The Kalispel Tribe lives in harmony with nature and is a national leader in preserving wildlife habitat and fish hatchery preservationists.
The Kalispel Tribe of Indians provides complete health care for its people. At the heart of that effort is the belief that a healthy and active lifestyle brings a long and prosperous life.
It is our mission to continue strengthening and building our community while preserving our cultural and natural heritage. We will continue striving to be a good neighbor to the greater community.
