On August 21, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, a tribe of over 5,900 citizens, announced the election of its new tribal council members: Rebecca J. Richards was elected as tribal chairwoman, the first female chairwoman of the Pokagon Band since 1994; Sam Morseau was elected secretary; Mark Topash will serve as member-at-large; and Barbara Ann Warren was elected to serve as elders representative.  Each member will serve a three year term. 

Chairwoman-elect Richards noted in a press release: “I’m looking forward to working with members of our Tribal Council and our wonderful staff to pioneer a new path for our people.”  She further noted: “I think this election is a real testament to the notion that women of all colors and creeds are considered seriously as trailblazers.  I’m excited to implement a style of leadership that puts the welfare of all members of our Nation first.”

The Pokagon Band operates a 10-county service area that includes four southwestern Michigan counties and six northern Indiana counties. The Pokagon Gaming Authority, led by Tribal Council members, operates the Pokagon Band’s Four Winds casinos, with three locations in Michigan and one in South Bend, Indiana.
