Proclamation 2020-04 - Emergency Declaration and Stay At Home Order Update

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe is in the process of reopening the Shawnee Administrative Campus.  As previously stated, the AST Recovery Plan consists of 4 phases.  Phase one will begin on Monday, May 11th. Elected officials, department heads, and essential employees will return to campus to perform necessary functions. In the coming days, all other employees will be notified by their management team on expected return-to-work dates.
Regarding tribal members and campus access, the AST campus, although open, is running with a minimum number of personnel. We recommend if a tribal member requires assistance, please call or email a director with your question.  If a trip to campus is needed to remedy an issue, we will schedule an appointment to ensure the correct staff member is present and available to assist you.  We appreciate your consideration during this time.  Our priority is the health and well-being of our tribal members and employees, and we strongly believe opening in phases is in the best interest of everyone.
