Hummingbird Funds, LLC is a sovereign enterprise, an economic development arm and instrumentality of, and wholly-owned and controlled by, the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians (the “Tribe”), a federally-recognized sovereign American Indian Tribe. This means that the Hummingbird Funds’ installment loan products are provided by a sovereign government and the proceeds of our business fund governmental services for Tribe citizens. This also means that Hummingbird Funds is not subject to suit or service of process. Rather, Hummingbird Funds is regulated by the Tribe. If you do business with Hummingbird Funds, your potential forums for dispute resolution will be limited to those available under Tribal law and your loan agreement. As more specifically set forth in Hummingbird Funds’ contracts, these forums include informal, but affordable and efficient Tribal dispute resolution, or individual arbitration before a neutral arbitrator. Otherwise, Hummingbird Funds is not subject to suit or service of process. Neither Hummingbird Funds nor the Tribe has waived its sovereign immunity in connection with any claims relative to use of this mobile site. If you are not comfortable doing business with a sovereign instrumentality that cannot be sued in court, you should discontinue use of this website.
