Welcome to the Burns Paiute Tribe!

Welcome to the Burns Paiute Tribe, located near Burns, Oregon in Harney County. The Burns Paiute Tribe is a community of 210 people dedicated to the healthy development of our families. While maintaining the endurance of cultural values and the protection of our vital natural resources, community members enjoy a healthy lifestyle with ample opportunity for vocational and recreational activities. Thanks to the Tribe’s early emphasis on health, wellness and education, our social and justice programs are minimal since the issues that require the need for those programs have all but been eliminated. Tribal leadership is strong, fair and a great model to be followed by future generations of Burns Paiute leaders
