ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Many representatives of Tribal Nations in the Pacific Northwest have come together to plan this important conference Honoring Our Past and Protecting Our Future. Indian gaming has brought great growth and opportunities to build economic security and rebuild our communities. Just as we come together during the year with gaming industry leaders and experts to share knowledge and perspectives on current issues affecting Indian gaming, we hope to bring together our Tribal Council leaders, behavioral health directors and counselors, education experts, and families to support each other with knowledge on health issues, addictions, and financial and safety concerns that affect our communities.
The Four Directions Conference has been successful in the past two years and interest in the event continues to grow. The Tulalip Tribes are pleased to host the conference again this year, and we are proud to welcome leaders such as Grandmother Margaret Behan, Ann Depice, Gayl Edmunds, Brian Farr, Roger Fernandes, Lena Hammonds, Linda Helm, Gordon James, Rick Krenzelok, Tina Olson, Sam Wetzler, Jim Wuelfing, and many others who will share their wisdom. Look over the full conference schedule and you're sure to find something that will expand your knowledge and skills around Clinical and Behavioral Health, Family Support, Prevention and Outreach issues, and Responsible Gaming programs and policies.
We hope you will join us for this important event!
