Tribal Complete Count Committees

Organizations across the country are supporting the 2020 Census. We'll regularly feature some of them here, looking at who they are and why an accurate census is so important to them.

Organization Name: Pala Tribal Complete Count Committee

Headquarters: San Diego County, California

About: The Pala tribe offers early childhood education classes, runs a charter elementary school, and provides a youth center and library to its 1,000 member reservation. The 2020 Census is the third census that the Pala Tribal Complete Count Committee has supported.


Organization Name: Shoshone-Bannock Tribes' Native Complete Count Committee

Headquarters: Fort Hall, Idaho

About: The Shoshone-Bannock tribes contribute $400 million annually to the local economy through thriving businesses that include casinos, a conference center, hotel, gift shops, gas stations, and agricultural holdings. The Shoshone-Bannock Tribe's Native Complete Count Committee began meeting in January 2019 and represents all five of the reservation's tribal service districts.

“We’ll stress that the population count is critical for us as a tribal community because we have a need for housing, we have a need for health care, education and transportation, and for apportionment. Our community of citizens needs to be represented.”

Denell Broncho, head of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes' Native Complete Count Committee
