Tribal Census

The Pokagon Band is seeking professional services to conduct a comprehensive census of its tribal citizens to update and enhance the results of its previous (first) tribal census completed in 2012. The Band seeks information that will assist the Tribal Council and other Pokagon leaders to make informed decisions, help assess and prioritize current tribal operations, identify and prepare for future tribal functions, and help the Band to improve the quality of life for its citizens. The census will also assist the Land Use Board pursuant to Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution. The goal is to select a consulting firm with the collective and personnel expertise that best matches the needs of the Band to successfully and expeditiously complete this important initiative. Deadline is July 17.

In addition, there is an independent Trustee for the Minors Trust.
