In 1938, the Constitution for the Caddo Indians of Oklahoma became an established government. The Tribal Council is composed of eight members: the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Oklahoma City Representative, Binger Representative, Anadarko Representative, and Fort Cobb Representative. The Representatives come from four areas (districts) with high populations of Caddo people. Though these Representatives are elected to represent their individual constituencies, they play an important part in making decisions for the entire tribe. With the exception of the Tribal Chairman, the Tribal Council members are not paid a salary. Council terms are staggered with each position seated four years.
The current Tribal Council consists of the following individuals:
|Ft. Cobb Representative
Maureen “Mo” Owings
Tracy Newkumet Burrows
