Shoalwaterbaytribe.com is committed to working toward helping to create a better place to live and work for tribal and community members, including employees. As such, the site is an outlet for free speech.
Like any group of human beings, the Shoalwater Bay Tribe is not free from the same types of problems found among nearly any group of people and the governments they elect, though most businesses and government institutions do all they can to create the appearance otherwise.
Within this context, the site is committed to bringing up difficulties through responsible news coverage and free discussion. The approach is critical for allowing the development of positive solutions to genuine tribal and community problems; understanding that taking a different route, covering up, misinforming, and being overly secretive, can be ways that maintain the problems at hand.
