In April Governor Kate Brown visited the Coquille Tribe. The Governor was joined by Tribal Chair Brenda Meade, as well as other Tribal Council members. The Governor toured sites that are important to the Tribe and its partnership with the state, including the Bandon Fish Hatchery, the Nasomah Memorial in Old Town Bandon, and the Ko-Kwel Wellness Center.
“I was thrilled to visit with the Coquille Tribe,” said Governor Brown. “I want to thank Chair Brenda Meade and the other Tribal Council members and staff for hosting me, and especially for allowing me the opportunity to learn about the efforts the Tribe is making to save local salmon stocks––which are central to the Tribe’s culture, subsistence, and way of life. I look forward to future opportunities to strengthen Oregon’s long-standing government-to-government relationship with the Coquille Tribe.”
