The Executive Branch consists of officers who serve four-year terms (the Tribal Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer), as well as all executive agencies and departments The Legislative Branch consists of a Tribal Council that meets twice a month. The Council’s members serve two-year terms. The concentration of power in these two branches is offset not only checks and balances between them, but also by direct participation of tribal members.
