Tribal Employment Rights Office

In 2005, the Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation Tribal Council enacted the Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance which is the preferential employment and contracting laws of the land within the boundaries of the Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation reservation.

The Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation TERO has a mission to help improve the quality of life for Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation Tribal Members and other Native American families through opportunities that can assist them in pursuing quality jobs or careers with decent wages and by protecting their rights of preferential employment, training, business and economic opportunities on and near the Tolowa Dee-ni' Nation reservation.

Services available to Tribal members
