Where Neighbors Meet for Friendship and Fun 

The Coquille Indian Tribe and The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park are proud to support many community events throughout the year.  Here are just a few of the highlights:

 

July 3 Fireworks

You can see fireworks almost anywhere on the Fourth of July. The Coquille Tribe’s Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park beats everybody to the punch each year, with a spectacular show the night before Independence Day. Non-reserved seating is free along the boardwalk. Food and beverages are available, and a free shuttle ferries guests to and from the Pony Village Mall parking lot.

 

 

 

 

Mill-Luck Celebration 

The annual return of spawning salmon has always been a joyful and reverent event for Oregon’s Native Tribes. In modern times, the Coquille people celebrate with a family-friendly event showcasing Indian culture. Dancers, drummers, storytellers and flutists offer free performances daily outside The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park. A marketplace features traditional wares and foods. Canoe races, activities for children, cultural demonstrations and educational exhibits round out the event. (And the salmon is yummy!)  The Mill website

Each summer the Tribe hosts an Adult Golf Fundraiser Tournament to support scholarships for of area youth — Tribal and non-Tribal alike.

  • Tribe Responds to COVID-19

    The Coquille Indian Tribe is taking appropriate steps in response to the COVID-19 epidemic. In addition to the measures undertaken by The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park, the tribal government administration is acting to protect the safety of our employees and tribal member families, while maintaining essential services to our membership.

    In the past few days, the tribe has canceled some group events.  We also have curtailed nonessential travel by our employees. We have been communicating to membership daily for the past week, keeping them informed about the status of the epidemic in both Oregon and nationwide, along with the tribe’s actions.

    Starting Monday, many of our tribal government employees will begin working from home. We are keeping our health center open. Other tribal government facilities will either close for the next two weeks or remain open on a limited basis, with minimal staffing. Like other local governments, we will evaluate the unfolding situation and respond accordingly.

    We offer our best wishes to the entire community in this challenging time.
