Nisqually’s Community Vision Plan is being updated
is the motto of the Nisqually Indian Tribe’s 1995 Community
Vision Plan. Since it was adopted, the Plan has been a used as a management tool for Tribal decision-
making. The Plan is organized from general to specific. It contains vision statements, values, goals, and
The Plan was developed in a two-year process that involved the entire Nisqually community, staff, man-
agement, and elected leaders. Everything in the Plan - including the motto, logo, stories, artwork, and
content - was created by the Nisqually community.
At the 2010 annual retreat, Tribal Council announced a two-year planning : an update of the
1995 Community Vision Plan. The Plan needs to be updated because of economic development, popula-
tion growth, and new programs, projects, and challenges. The Tribe has many new tribal members who
weren’t part of the previous planning effort. To update the Plan, the Tribe will create a Vision Commit-
tee to revisit the 1995 Plan, assess progress since the Plan was adopted, engage the Nisqually communi-
ty, and update the Plan to reflect the current needs, hopes, and dreams of the Nisqually people.
Tribal Council will soon appoint Vision Committee members. Throughout the planning process,
Nisqually community members are welcome and encouraged to actively participate in Vision Committee
meetings and related activities and events.
