Our Executive Leadership Team: Lighting the Way.

The CIHA executive leaders are some of the Tribe’s best and brightest—and also some of the most caring. Without their careful stewardship of CIHA’s budget and resources, our community wouldn’t receive the level of care and compassion it enjoys today.
