2) Second, to Port Gamble S'Klallam descendents and parents of enrolled Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Member children,
3) Third to other Indians enrolled in any federally recognized tribe, and
4) Fourth to non-Indian candidates.
This preference is for the purpose of furthering the goals of self-determination and employment opportunities for the Tribe and its members.
