All of the Tribe's departments have one goal: to protect the Reservation's resources. The Natural Resource Department is quite active with a wide array of programs funded through various Federal agencies. All Departments assert the Tribe's sovereignty in protecting the environment, natural resources, and public health of the Summit Lake Indian Reservation and the Tribe's traditional territory where Tribal members still retain rights to hunt, fish, gather traditional foods, medicine, and conduct spiritual and religious practices.
