Tribal Future

As San Juan Southern Paiutes, we are strong and resilient in the face of many challenges. We are committed to providing a future for our People that is built on growth and sustainability and caring for our elders and children.

Infinite Possibilities

2019 Marks a New Year!

While we have had many successes this past year, there is still a lot to do. Our Tribal Law & Order Code (which is now published on our Tribal website) requires many more new titles and chapters to fully address the needs of our People. We must continue to plan how we will use the funds we receive from gaming to balance the current needs of our Tribal Members with the sustainability of our Tribe for generations to come.
