Today, the Chickasaw Nation is economically strong, culturally vibrant and full of energetic people dedicated to the preservation of family, community, and heritage. Since the 1980s, the tribal government has focused on building an economically diverse base to generate funds that will support programs and services to Indian people. The business has flourished, programs and services have grown, and the quality of life for all Chickasaws has been greatly enhanced.
Monies generated in business are divided between investments for further diversification of enterprises and support of tribal government operations, programs and services for Chickasaw people.
This unique system is key to the Chickasaw Nation’s efforts to pursue self-sufficiency and self-determination which helps ensure that Chickasaws stay a united and thriving people.
