Tribal Preference

Federal law recognizes the inherent authority of Indian tribes and tribal organizations to exercise an employment preference for their own members and other Indians. This is often referred to as tribal or Indian preference.

Accordingly, preference in all aspects of employment with the Tribe will be given

1) First, to enrolled members of the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe,

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: When are the General Council meetings scheduled for this year?

    The PGST Constitution states “The General Council shall hold semi-annual meetings on the last Saturday of March and the first Saturday of October.
  • Q: What is a Public Hearing and when is the next one?

    Public Hearings are held when a change is being made to Tribal Law. Sometimes it's an amendment to the law and sometimes it's a brand new law. ALL General Council members are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings. Members' opinion is very important to the Tribal Council. The Council needs all perspectives in order to make sure proposed law is appropriate for the PGST community. Although no formal action is taken during Public Hearings, they are conducted much like General Council meetings and provide a great opportunity for community input.

    Public Hearing Notices are posted several weeks ahead of time in the Community Memo, on tribal buildings and are added to the Community Calendar as they are scheduled by the Tribal Council.

    Full copies of proposed changes are available from the front desk or in the registered member section of the website under the "publications" link under "public hearings".
  • Q: How do I get on the Tribal Council Agenda?

    Agenda items are due to the Executive Assistant to the Tribal Council by the Tuesday prior to each meeting.

    Forms can be found at the Tribal Center Reception Desk.
