Tribal Economic Development
When restoring the Coquille Tribe’s government-to-government relationship with the United States in 1989, Congress added statutory language calling on the Tribe to achieve self-sufficiency through economic development.
It was no surprise that in 1992 the first Coquille Tribal Council created an economic development corporation to help carry out this mandate. Tribal One (the Mith-ih-kwuh Economic Development Corporation) is now taking this economic imperative into its fourth decade of support for the Coquille Tribe.
With a responsibility to grow and diversify a business portfolio for the Coquille Tribe, Tribal One focuses on creating business opportunities that will benefit from the expertise of its team members. In its business development role, Tribal One prioritizes adding value to existing Tribal holdings and building partnerships that help to further diversify the Tribe’s business portfolio. Tribal One offers its strategic partners the ability to leverage the unique advantages of a business relationship with a tribally owned entity. Those advantages, when matched with the added benefit of a team of dedicated, experienced professionals, give our business partners the competitive edge they need to thrive.
