The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe on Friday, Oct. 18, announced Jerry Lamb as the Tribe’s new General Manager.
Lamb was hired in October 2012 as the economic development director and was later appointed as the interim tribal administrator in 2013. He is an enrolled member of the Gros Ventre Tribe in Montana and has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration from the University of Montana.
Lamb’s extensive experience in Indian country includes various leadership positions in tribal government and tribal business entities. In addition, he also held a staff position under former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, working on policy and economic development projects with tribes in Montana and serving as an advisor on Native American issues.
“It has been a privilege to serve as the interim tribal administrator over the course of the last five months and very much an honor to be selected as the new general manager. I look forward to continuing to work with the Snoqualmie Tribal Council, the administration staff, and the tribal membership as we continue to improve tribal businesses and membership services,” Lamb said in a statement.
Chairwoman Carolyn Lubenau said, “Jerry’s experience, background and heritage make him uniquely qualified to take on the position of general manager of the tribe. The Tribal Council looks forward to working with Jerry in his new capacity as we continue to move our tribe toward a brighter future.”
The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is a federally recognized tribe in the Puget Sound region. Known as the People of the Moon, Snoqualmie Tribal members were signatories of the Treaty of Point Elliott with the Washington territory in 1855.
The Tribe owns and operates the Snoqualmie Casino in Snoqualmie.
