Coeur d'Alene Tribe is second largest employer in region
The Coeur d'Alene Tribe is the second-largest employer in north Idaho, according to a University of Idaho study.

The tribe employed 1,699 people last year. That's second only to Kootenai Health, which had 1,813 employees.

"The real story here is the tribe’s emergence as one of the region’s largest employers,” economics professor Steven Peterson, the author of the study, told The Spokesman Review “They have diversified and expanded in all directions.”

The tribe employs about 1,400 people at its casino. The rest work in tribal government and in other tribal enterprises.
