Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation

Northwest Region


One of the primary goals of the Northwest Region has been to support the transfer of programs, services, functions and activities formerly provided by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to those tribes who desire to exercise their governmental rights through self-determination “contracting” and self-governance “compacting”. A majority of the Northwest Tribes have contracted/compacted for some or all of the Regional Office and agency program functions and associated funding.
