Tribal Council

The current Tribal Council consists of the following individuals:

Chairman: Vice-Chairman:
Secretary: Treasurer:
Anadarko Representative: Binger Representative:
Fort Cobb Representative Oklahoma City Representative:

Other officials of the Caddo Nation include members of the Hearing Board and the Election Board.

In 1938, the Constitution for the Caddo Indians of Oklahoma became an established government. The Tribal Council is composed of eight members: the Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, 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. Terms are for four years. With the exception of the Tribal Chairperson, the Tribal Council members are not paid a salary.
