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 the Police Tip line phone number?The tipline should be used to report suspicious activity or tips that can help an investigation. If you are witnessing a crime in action, been victim of a crime, or have an emergency it is ALWAYS best to call 911.
Anonymous Police Tipline: 930-9061
The police will not contact you back unless you request it. Tips can be left by voicemail or text messaging.
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: When does the Tribal Council meet?The Tribal Council meets on the second and fourth Monday of every month.
Q: What does “Tribal Sovereignty” mean?"Sovereignty" is the inherent authority to govern. Tribes use the term interchangeably with self-governance and self determination.
"Sovereignty is governing your people and governing your land."
"Tribal sovereignty is a tool to preserve culture and traditions of Indian people."
