PENDLETON — Tribal leaders on Thursday, Sept. 21, signed a first-of-its-kind agreement with a corporate entity, further establishing a partnership and ensuring consultation in development projects that could affect land or resources important to Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation community members.

The agreement, a memorandum of understanding with Amazon Web Services, builds on a years-long relationship between the entities and defines how the two will work together or resolve disputes involving AWS development projects on CTUIR-ceded lands or traditional-use areas. It guarantees that the tribe will play a prominent role in protecting access to or resources on such lands.
