Doing Business with Companies Backed by an Indian Nation
Indian Nations across the United States are sovereign governments. The Quinault Indian Nation (QIN) has possessed full legal sovereignty since time immemorial, as was recognized by the United States in 1855, when the Quinault River Treaty (also known as the Treaty of Olympia) was negotiated. The Quinault govern their own people and territory in matters of legislation, taxation, law enforcement, administration, and regulation. Sovereignty means the QIN governs itself and creates laws that make sense for its population and to be inclusive of their culture.
