2017-2018 MCT Constitutional Education Sessions/Constitutional Convention Meetings


In March 2017, the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe (MCT) Tribal Executive Committee authorized a Constitutional Convention to open the discussion to the membership for input/feedback. MCT hosted seven educational sessions from August 2017 to February 2018. The Native Nations Institute (NNI) and the University of Arizona facilitated six of the seven sessions.

The sessions were designed to

1) provide general information on constitutions, the role of governments, governmental forms found in Indian Country, and how others have revised their  constitution;

2) provide a historical overview and a review of the MCT Constitution; and

3) allot ample time for member input on the existing constitution and possible revisions.
