About Us

The Tule River Economic Development Corporation is a non-profit corporation chartered by the Tule River Tribal Council of the Tule River Band of Yokuts Indians. The original intent was to create an organization tasked with developing jobs as well as creating a diverse revenue base to benefit the people of the Tule River Reservation and the surrounding community.

At a time when many tribes focused on gaming, the Tule River Indian Tribe chose to utilize its gaming resources to increase further economic expansion.

Having started Tule River Economic Development Corporation years prior to the advent of Indian gaming, it is now situated to help the Tribe diversify its revenue potential as well as employment opportunities for members of the Tribe. Tule River Economic Development Corporation is setting the standard for economic development among Indian tribes across the nation.

To meet the demand of its mission, The Tule River Economic Development Corporation is currently involved in several ventures. While each project is diverse in nature, each takes advantage of relative advantages and resources unique to the Tule River Indian Reservation and the surrounding area.
