A doorbell and intercom system was recently installed at the Spokane Tribe Administration Building. There are doorbell/intercoms on both the south and north side main entrances. Currently the front doors remain locked for COVID-19 screening purposes. If you need to see someone at the Admin Building you will need to make an appointment with that person so they can alert the personnel downstairs. In the very near future similar doorbell and intercom systems will be installed at Spokane Tribal Court, Health and Human Services, Spokane Site TANF, and the Indiana Building.
