Mission Statement

The TERO office is responsible for the enforcement and administration of the Red Lake Nation Tribal Employment Rights Ordinances ("TERO") Resolution No. 170-12. The Red Lake Nation TERO create employment, employment training, education and opportunities for tribal members within our Sovereign Nation.

What is TERO?

TERO stands for Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance or Office.

TERO requires that all employers who are engaged in operating a business on reservations give preference to qualified Native Americans in all aspects of employment, contracting and other business activities. TERO offices were established and empowered to monitor and enforce the requirements of the tribal employment rights ordinance. 

What is the purpose of the TERO program?

The primary purpose of the TERO program is to enforce tribally enacted Indian Preference law to insure that Red Lake Nation citizens gain their rightful share to employment, traning, contracting, subcontracting and business opportunities on and near reservations and native villages.
