Aanii (Hello)! I hope each of you and your families are in good health. The COVID-19 pandemic has made a lasting mark on our lives, families, and community. In order to alleviate some of the pain and hardships, the Tribal Council wanted to ensure that the Tribe was able to establish vital programming and projects to meet the needs of our Little Shell members.
The Tribal Council is excited that many of the Little Shell programs and projects are underway. The renovations to the Health Clinic and the Event Center are drawing closer to completion. The Council is also pleased to announce the 2021 Emergency Financial Assistance grant to aid those still feeling the grave impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tribe has diligently worked to assist tribal members with access to the COVID-19 vaccine and rental assistance.
As the Tribe moves forward to establish programming, the Tribal Council will be conducting community surveys to understand the needs and priorities of Little Shell tribal members. Please be sure to provide your valuable input. Please continue to look out for one another and to check in with our elders.
Miigwech (Thank you), Chairman Gerald Gray
