CRIT Launches Comprehensive Tribal Web Site
March 14, 2005

Will Increase Opportunities to Do Business With Tribes and Communication With Members

PARKER, Arizona - The Colorado River Indian Tribes have launched a comprehensive web site to provide information to Tribal members, tourists and those interested in doing business with the Tribes. It is the latest in a string of tribal initiatives to improve communications as well as the life of members.

Last year, the tribe re-established its newspaper, the Manataba Messenger, for the first time in many years.

The web site is currently located at The Tribes will also be adding a Bureau of Indian Affairs web address in the future.

The new web site provides a comprehensive overview of Tribal government, departments, services, businesses and tourist attractions. It also contains news and information, including back issues of the CRIT Tribal newspaper, the Manataba Messenger.

The site is primarily complete, but additional features and improvements will continue to be added over time. The site's features include:

  • A comprehensive listing of Tribal departments, with information from most departments pertinent to Tribal members and key audiences.

  • Background on CRIT and the four tribes that comprise it - the Navajo, Hopi, Mohave and Chemehuevi.

  • Tribal Council meeting information and biographies of the CRIT Tribal Council..

  • Information on Tribal businesses and opportunities for non-Tribal entities to do business with the Tribes.

  • Opportunities for Tribal members and non-Tribal members to provide input and ask questions about the site and its contents.

“This is a key step for CRIT in not only communicating with our own members, but communicating with outsiders as well,” said Tribal Chairman Daniel Eddy, Jr. “We want this web site to be an invaluable resource for our people and make it easier for them to access important Tribal services and information. And we also encourage those from outside the reservation to use the site as a resource for tourism and business opportunities.”

The Colorado River Indian Tribes lie along the Colorado River in western Arizona and eastern California, in and around Parker, Arizona. For more information on CRIT, visit the Tribal web site at
