Cow Creek Tribe CEO Discusses Oregon Wildfires, Business Ventures
CEO of the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians, Michael Rondeau, appeared this past week on KOBI-TV’s “Five on 5” to discuss a variety of recent topics pertaining to the tribe. Rondeau stated portions of tribal land in Douglas County, Oregon, have been damaged because of wildfires affecting the area. As a result, he said there needs to be “active forest management” and that wildfires and smoke damage remain a major concern for the tribe moving forward. While Seven Feathers Casino and Resort remains a well-known enterprise for the Cow Creek Tribe, Rondeau also discussed further business ventures for the tribe regarding agriculture, travel and transportation, and communications-based projects.
