โ€œThe song is ended but the melody lingers on.โ€ โ€” Irving Berlin

And what a beautiful reverberating melody Joe has left behind! Even in his absence, Joe is remembered for his endearing personality, his whimsical sense of humor, and his notable contributions to our community. Surely Joe's rich legacy will continue to live on for years to come through the lives of those whom he inspired. โค๏ธ

Thank you to the surviving family of Joe for hosting a fourth-year anniversary so that we may share in his remembrance.

Good evening BUSD students, families and community members. This Wednesday, Aug. 30th, from 5:30pm-6:30pm, will be our first interactive Mental Health presentation. The topic is, "How to Motivate your child/student". If anyone is having issues motivating their students in regards to attendance, homework, unwanted behaviors etc... then this is definitely designed to help support YOU!

Participants can attend in person at the district office or online via Zoom. Please scan the QR code to register.

I am looking forward to seeing guardians and/or family members that can participate in this opportunity on Wed. evening.

07/16/2021

These are images shared by representatives of the Kawulk (Cowlic) Community after yesterday's rains. This road is terrible on a good day and impassable on days like yesterday. I am grateful for the efforts of the community representatives who have made this issue a top priority dedicating millions of their own allocations of funding thats awarded to the District yearly but, It's bandage of a much larger problem.

We know it's not a very high priority but think about your drive to work and if it's anything like this, your drive to the store,your drive to see family. I am grateful for the effort of the Nation's programing directors, managers and staff for their outreach, its far too long we have discussed these issues and time we address it.

My heart and thoughts are with anyone who has to make decisions everyday and doesn't decide this is priority we need to address.

Many entities/programs including BIA, BUSD,TOUA USBP etc. have already voiced support for the efforts to fix this road.

I have made it my mission as the Chairman to do what I can, I am but one man without the expertise or knowledge but this is not the legacy I intend to leave, On behalf of the community and our District I hope that we can count on support for much better care, maintainenace and, livelihood for our people.

Peace and continued blessings,

Komckud E-waโ€™osidk Ceksan - Sells District - Welcome to our page!

Traditionally known as the Komckud E-waโ€™osidk Ceksan (Turtle Wedged District), we are one of the Tohono Oโ€™odham Nationโ€™s eleven political Districts, located south centrally on our tribeโ€™s reservation in Southern Arizona. The Sells District is the most populated District on the reservation and houses the tribal government and nearly all of the local services including: Bashas, Tohono Plaza, U.S. Post Office, fire station, police station, jail, hospital and tribal court. The District is made up of eight communities: Kawulk (The Hill), Ge Oidag (Big Field), North Communities (No:ligk, Iron Stand, Rincon, Bobcat, San Luis) and Sells (Komckud E-Wa'osidk: Turtle Wedged). We have formed this page as a tool for our constituents who live on and off the reservation to seek available services with the most convenience. As well it is open to the public for reference. The page will be updated regularly to provide the best service possible. THANK YOU FOR VISITING!
