Constitution and Comprehensive Codes of Justice

On September 14, 1970, the Tribe adopted a Constitution and bylaws, and the traditional system of government was replaced with a Tribal Council. The Council consists of five elected officials: a Chairman, Vice- Chairman, Secretary/ Treasurer and two councilman-at-large. The Chitimacha Tribe, as a sovereign nation, shares a unique government-to-government relationship with the United States.
