Current Information About the Coquille Indian Tribe
Currently the Coquille Indian Tribe has about 65 hundred acres, and 24 parcels in Coos County, Oregon. There Indian Reservation and Community Heath Center is located in Empire District of Coos Bay. The Federal recognition of the tribe in 1989 has since opened new doors for the Coquille. The tribe has established an economic development arm, the Coquille Economic Development Corporation, which has initiated a large number of ambitious projects. These include:
1. The Mill: The most visible is "The Mill," a casino on the North Bend waterfront, which will eventually provide 1,000 jobs. Established in 1995, The Mill Casino and Hotel is the largest of the tribes' businesses, employing nearly 600. A premier South Coast destination, The Mill Casino offers a winning combination of Nevada-style gaming, varied dining options, world-class entertainment and gracious accommodations, all in an atmosphere of Northwest-inspired comfort and friendly service.
2: Coquille Cranberries: An organic cranberry-farming venture centrally located on reservation land, is perhaps the most culturally resonant of CEDCO's businesses, expressing both the Tribe's environmental beliefs and the importance of cranberries in Coquille history. Among the world's largest suppliers of 100% organic cranberries, these crops are both sold to commercial suppliers and marketed under the Coquille Cranberries label in fresh and dried forms, as well as preserves.
3: Heritage Place: The first entity to be established, Heritage Place — an assisted-living and Alzheimer's center located in the heart of the Coquille homeland in Bandon, Oregon — reflects the Tribe's commitment to elders and quality health care. Residents enjoy a homelike atmosphere and numerous activities along with state-of-the-art medical services.
