The Tribal Council governs the Winnebago Tribe and consists of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, and five other members. All council members are elected by tribal members for a three year term while officers are appointed for a one year term from within the council. Elections are held every October to elect three members.
The Winnebago Tribal homelands are located in the northeast corner of Nebraska, and a portion of western Iowa.
The future of the Winnebago Tribe is directly related to the protection of our homelands and how well we enable our children to continue our cultural traditions and manage our resources in rebuilding our economy. We believe the children of the Winnebago have the desire and the ability to survive, grow, and rebuild our Nation in the 21st century. Currently, the Tribe has 4,000 enrolled members.
