The Vision Statement of the Washoe Nation calls on us to work towards preserving, reviving, and living the Washoe culture and traditions where:

Respect for one another and tribal values promote our spiritual, physical, and environmental wellness
Educational opportunities are available for all tribal members and descendants
A solid economic foundation ensures self-sufficiency for tribal success
Responsive government promotes teamwork, professionalism and accountability
On safe and secure tribal lands

In line with this vision statement, the Washoe Tribal Council wishes to improve our current business operations and to build upon our economic development initiatives. We are seeking ongoing input from our Tribal membership, and hope that you will take the time to fill out this survey to be entered into our annual Off Rez Winter Raffle.

Question Title

* 7. While both Nevada and California legalized the recreational use of cannabis for adults 21 years and older, the use and possession of cannabis/marijuana is still illegal on Washoe Tribal reservation lands. Would you support efforts to carry out a referendum to legalize the use of cannabis on reservation lands? A referendum means that all eligible voters within the Washoe Tribe will have a chance to vote on whether or not they support this change to the Washoe Tribe Law and Order Code. This change would need to happen before the Tribe can pursue any economic initiative related to cannabis.
