Message from our Chairman

Welcome to the Nevada Indian Commission. The Governor and Legislature recognize the Commission as an integral part of the Governor’s Cabinet that works closely with State Agencies to encourage meaningful dialogue with Nevada Tribes on a government-to-government basis while being responsive to the unique needs of American Indian residents throughout the State.
As Chairman, I have the distinct privilege of working with highly qualified Governor-appointed Commissioners along with an exceptional staff who are all dedicated to fulfilling our responsibilities and proudly serving the State of Nevada. Together, we encourage you to learn more about the important role our office plays and our shared commitment to addressing the needs of American Indians in our great State.
