Establishment & Purpose

The Authority is an independent tribal government subdivision and was created to operate on behalf of the Tribe for the benefit of the Tribe by enforcing tribal law to protect Consumers.  The Authority is funded through its licensing and enforcement practices, as well as from the Tribe’s general fund.  Although under the direction of the Governing Board, the Code ensures that the Authority operates with sufficient autonomy to remain insulated from the Tribe’s political and economic concerns.
