About TribalNet

TribalNet was formed in 1999 with the primary purpose of bringing tribes, tribal employees and resources together. Over the past 18 years it has grown to be THE platform to connect and seek opportunities in solutions, best practices, and technology among tribal government, gaming and healthcare industries. TribalNet provides a variety of resources, tools, educational and cost saving opportunities year round. These include: membership services, bi-annual magazine publication, an annual conference, as well as training, research and consulting divisions. Tribal governments, health centers, gaming and non-gaming enterprises use TribalNet as a go-to guide for making well informed decisions. Furthermore, solution providers and vendors work with TribalNet to create solid partnerships within the tribal market by becoming further educated on how to best service this one of a kind market. For nearly 20 years, TribalNet has fostered many long-lasting peer to peer relationships as well as profitable connections, many more of which are sure to come.

How do we achieve the goal of bringing technology and
tribes together?
