Tribes

Protecting Your Vision

Moss Adams serves more tribes throughout the nation than most other accounting firms, and we've been doing this for more than 30 years.

Today, more than 60 tribal governments rely on our in-depth knowledge and expertise in tribal affairs, and they benefit from our assurance, tax, and consulting services.

Our approach to serving Indian Country is based on respect for our clients' tribal culture and sovereignty, and we work hard to earn the trust of the tribal councils and enterprise boards we work with.

We also recognize that effectively delivering services to your tribal members is one of your most important priorities. As your trusted advisor, we can help you achieve that goal by providing services designed to not only improve your tribal governance capabilities and structures but also enhance your revenue streams through enterprise development and strategic partnerships.
