About Us

A family of companies supporting a nation

Our story began in 1996, and for nearly 25 years, our mission has remained the same: to support the Chickasaw Nation and help the tribe develop its economy. As one of the largest tribally-owned contractors in the United States, we are proud to say that a portion of our profit goes back to the Chickasaw Nation.

Every day, we work knowing that our success helps create scholarships, develop educational programs, and establish health care facilities and senior centers for the Chickasaw Nation.


What we do

Proudly serving and giving back

We operate divisions located across the United States and oversee projects for the federal government that contribute to tribal, local, and national economies. Working for the Chickasaw Nation Industries (CNI) means that you will have access to a wide array of opportunities in many areas of expertise from Network Services to Manufacturing to Technology-Based Solutions.

Your knowledge and skills can make a difference.


Core Values

With approximately 1,800 employees distributed across most states and over five different countries, we need strong core values to unite and guide us. We are proud to say that these guiding principles are deeply rooted in our culture and lived by our employees everywhere.


We will be professional and considerate.


We will be consistent, truthful, ethical and fair in all our actions.


We will serve our employees, customers and the Chickasaw Nation by providing a positive and rewarding work environment beneficial to individual growth, making customer needs our priority, and contributing to the resources needed to enhance the lives of the Chickasaw people.

Commitment to Success

Like the unconquered and unconquerable Chickasaw Nation, we will not fail.


We will provide our employees with the tools, knowledge, and environment to make effective decisions.


We will support each other, and by working together, we will succeed.


We will exemplify our willingness to take ownership for our outcomes through our abilities, actions, and attitudes.

“I wanted a career that would make me feel both valuable and valued, and CNI has checked both of those boxes! Executive management creates an environment that encourages you to be the best version of yourself, with both the setting and the tools to do so. Our culture of helping others makes it easier and more satisfying to tackle even the most challenging daily tasks. Contributing and growing my skills while assisting various contracts or projects has been truly rewarding.”

"As a Chickasaw Citizen, I find great satisfaction in being able to contribute to the tribal mission of enhancing the overall quality of life of the Chickasaw people. We are all different as humans, but we serve a common goal. This is what sets CNI apart - building a business that supports a nation, while recognizing and celebrating each of our differences."
