Indian tribes existed as sovereign governments long before European settlement in America. European nations and later the United States signed treaties with Indian tribes in exchange for guaranteed land and continued recognition and treatment of Indian tribes as sovereigns. Wenona will continue to uphold the government-to-government relationship Indian tribes maintain with the U.S. federal government and will ensure that the federal government fulfills the federal trust responsibility, recognizes the principles of Indian self-determination and self-governance, and protects Indian civil rights, religion, and culture.
