We Are Kalispel

The life of a Kalispel is founded on being humble, generous and committed to community. This is the heart of who we are. Our traditions teach us to be grateful and to respect what we receive from the land. 

We are pleased to share our homeland at Kalispel Park with you, along with our strength, spirit, and commitment to a better future. We believe that in working together with the community, we continue the advancement of our people. These strong foundations have led us to be highly educated and successful business people, and we are now one of the largest private employers in Spokane and Pend Oreille Counties.

Our Enterprises

The Kalispel Tribe employs more than 2,000 people and manages numerous successful enterprises, including Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Airway Heights, the region’s premier destination Four Diamond resort, and Kalispel Casino in Cusick. Our economic development reaches far beyond gaming and includes metal products, health and wellness, outdoor recreation, and hospitality, just to name a few. And our successes extend well beyond economic development, from the work that Kalispel Natural Resources does to care for our land, air, and water, to our cultural and Salish language programs, to the Camas Center & Clinic that care for the wellbeing of our local community members. We consider success from a holistic perspective as well as the prosperity of our community. Learn more about our history and vision for the future by visiting the Kalispel Tribe website.

We believe in being a strong community partner, and since 2000, we have donated approximately $1 million annually to our local communities.
