Health & Human Services Mission 

The Health and Human Services Department of the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians will reflect the Mission of the Tribe through comprehensive, service oriented, culturally and community focused approaches.

Health & Human Services Vision

We will be a Tribal Health and Human Services Department of the highest quality that has integrated our Elder’s historical vision of maintaining integrity, spirituality, culture and self-sufficiency through the services we provide to eliminate health and social illness in our Tribal community.


Confidentiality is an essential component of patient care. Patient confidentiality is a conscious effort by the Gun Lake Tribe Health and Human Services staff to keep private all personal information revealed by the patient. To protect confidentiality, medical information is accessible only to those who “need to know” in order to deliver effective care.
