We, the Wisconsin Potawatomi

Our Tribal Constitution was formed by 47 tribal member in the mid 1930’s. A time when there was not much hope for tribal members. They formed their own tribal government with-in the the State of Michigan boundaries and often make government to government agreements with the State.

Tribal Government Office

The tribal government has an agreement with Potawatomi and Indian people that forms the basis for our National Constitution, as some may perceive the document, but non the less it is our forming documents that establishes a relation ship with the people and elected tribal government (s).

The following is an expert of our forming documents:

UNITED STATES
DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
OFFICE OF INDIAN AFFAIRS

CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS OF THE
HANNAHVILLE INDIAN COMMUNITY
MICHIGAN

APPROVED JULY 23,1936

UNITED STATES
GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
WASHINGTON: 1936

CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS OF THE HANNAHVIILLE
INDIAN COMMUNITY

PREAMBLE

We, the Potowatomies residing near Wilson and Harris in Menominee County, Michigan, on lands reserved for the Wisconsin Pototatomies residing in Michigan, in order to form a representative organization, to promote the welfare of our people, to preserve the land for ourselves and our children, and to provide homes for all the Indians of this Community who need them, do establish this Constitution.

No where in the document is it stated the tribal government formed this arrangment.

Just like the US Constitution, ours begins with,

WE the Pottawatomie, not We the Tribal Government, or State Government.

Tribal employment

Well 15 months of applying for jobs that interest me I finally get the Food and Beverage Supervisor position with full benefits after a 90-day probation evaluation.

I hope these guys are ready for me again!

If it does not relate to customer service and food quality I probably am not entertaining it.

I was reminded about Facebook policies. Personally I think Facebook posts are the social media jobs to police, which they doing anyway.

There are 14 other supervisors so this should be quite a challenge if nothing else.if I apply Dad’s rules. Being productive is key and I will be contributing to the success of the tribe, even in a small sense.
