BlackBird CEO Bill Walsh said customers and workers were pleased by the opening of the new facility. "The tribal members here, they want to work. They want to earn money for their family, and even the non-tribal members, they worked so hard to get things done and we wouldn't even be open if it wasn't for the employees," Walsh said.
