Economic Development

Shxwhá:y people are resourceful with a keen sense of independence that is focused on sustainable use of resources to generate economic activity and revenues.  Shxwhá:y people will thrive economically, socially, politically and culturally through their unwavering commitment to being the best that they can be.

Economic development promotes and maintains the standard of living and economic health of our people.  Gravel extraction, agricultural cash crops, and DLC have been an on-going source of revenue for Shxwhá:y Village.  Today, Shxwhá:y members are forging a new era for Shxwhá:y Village.  Members are looking ahead to a sustainable and community-based economy.

We are gradually phasing these out as new viable businesses are being developed. Environmentally-friendly and carefully planned economic development businesses. Through the revenues they brought to Shxwhá:y Village, we have been able to revive our community.
