Dear Tribal members,
This poll is to guide Tribal leaders in preparing for a successful General Council meeting. This is not a substitute for voting. The results of question 1 will be used to guide Tribal attorneys in drafting a resolution for a General Council vote. Other questions are to guide preparations.
Have you so far opted NOT to get vaccinated from COVID-19?
The Suquamish Tribe has now vaccinated hundreds of Tribal members and their families. Some, however, have still not been vaccinated.
If you are a Suquamish Tribal Member, Family Member, Government Staffer, or Tribal Business Employee who has NOT yet been vaccinated, Suquamish Government health professionals would like to better understand why.
Please take this short, anonymous survey, so we can best plan for future vaccination distributions.
If you are in an enrolled Suquamish Tribal Member and would like to schedule COVID-19 Vaccination for you and/or those who live with you in your immediate household, please fill out the following form. Once we receive your form, a scheduler will call to book your appointment as soon as possible.
Only one person in each household needs to submit this form.
You may schedule yourself and other members of your IMMEDIATE HOUSEHOLD who will be in the car with you. You can also schedule other members of your immediate household who need to come separately at another date/time.
For now, only those 18 years old and above can be vaccinated. Clinical studies need to be completed confirming the safety of the vaccine for those under 18 before it can be offered to them.
Please be prepared to schedule both first and second doses. The second shot needs to be administered about 28 days after the first.
Vaccinations are provided by appointment only at a drive-thru clinic on the ground floor of the Clearwater Casino garage. You can read fact sheets and learn more about our vaccination process here.
If you are unable to fill out this form or have questions, please call our Vaccination Hotline at 360-394-7191 and leave your name and phone number. You can also email email@example.com Someone will return your call/email as soon as possible.
FOR SUQUAMISH TRIBAL MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES ONLY
The Suquamish Tribal Council has opted to provide the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Tribal members who would like to receive it.
The purpose of this survey is to gauge how many people will be interested in getting the vaccine so that staff can be better prepared to distribute it.
There are only five brief questions and all responses are completely anonymous.
If you are certain others in your household won’t take the survey but you are reasonably sure of their answers, feel free to take the survey again for each person. Just click on the link you received and reanswer all the questions.
The Moderna vaccine requires two shots in order to receive full protection. The second shot must be given a month after the first. Both shots will be administered by Tribal staff on Port Madison Indian Reservation.
When both doses are taken, the Moderna vaccine provides 95 percent protection against COVID-19. Most side effects are a good sign that the vaccine is working as intended.
The Tribal Council is seeking applications from Tribal members for appointment to Executive Board positions that are up on December 31, 2020. To apply for appointment, please complete the following form.
You may also submit letters of interest to Rebecca Purser, Tribal Council Executive Assistant, by mail at PO Box 498, Suquamish WA 98392, or by email to BoardsCommissions@Suquamish.nsn.us. This form and any supporting material must be submitted by the end of business on December 4, 2020.
Current board and commission members whose terms are expiring should also complete this process if you would like to renew your term.
Dozens of Suquamish Tribe staff members came together at the House of Awakened Culture on Thursday and Friday morning to prepare boxes of groceries for home delivery to eligible Tribal Elders in need residing in the local area. The groceries were primarily for Elders who did not have family members in the immediate area who could shop for them.
The deliveries will supply the Elders with enough food to last two weeks.
Made possible by the blessing of Tribal Council, the food packaging and delivery was accomplished through the joint efforts of Human Services, Community Development, Emergency Management, Maintenance, Clearwater Casino Resort, and Suquamish Tribe Administration.
The Suquamish Tribal Court will be available for limited operations, until further notice.
All bail hearings and arraignments for in custody defendants will still be held in the time required by Tribal Code. The court is also still available to hear all matters of an urgent nature, including requests for protection orders and emergency child welfare orders. In order to minimize the spread of Covid-19, the court will use video/conference calls for all hearings.
For more details, see the Emergency Administrative Order below.
If you have any questions, contact the court clerk at (360) 394-8697 or firstname.lastname@example.org
