How to become a FDL delegate to Minnesota
Chippewa Tribe Constitution Reform Process

FDL Constitutional Reform 

This is a group of Tribal members that are currently working to revise the Constitution of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. We also discuss sovereignty as it relates to the reservation today. 

The Delegates meet with representatives from all of the MCT bands on a monthly basis to discuss the changes that we can agree upon in order to reform our current (outdated) Constitution. 

Meetings are open to the public. 

Draft Referendum on Enrollment


Delegates are taking comments on the wording of an enrollment referendum at this time. 

The Tribal Executive Committee of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe confirmed a referendum vote approximately April 2022 at the TEC meeting held on October 29, 2021.


Here is a copy of the draft Referendum to which we are referring.
