Elder Care Program
As the backbone of our Tsistsistas and Hinono’ei communities, the tribal government provides a wide range of services to show appreciation for our elders.
Our elders provide direction and wisdom for the Cheyenne and Arapaho people. Every day, the values, history, and way of life they teach us to serve as our guide into the future.
