Welcome to the home of Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation

Tribal Council

The Tribal Council is the elected government of the nation. Its primary duties are to author the nation's laws and policies and to serve as the decision-making authority on budgets and investments.

For carrying out laws and policies, the council created a tribal administration. Overall, the administration ensures that services, as decided by the council, are provided to nation members.

The Tribal Council consists of seven members. The terms are staggered. Each Tribal Council member has responsibility for certain duties listed in the Potawatomi Constitution. One of their main duties is to protect the health, peace, morals, education and welfare of the tribe.
