In 2013 the Wyandotte Nation started a new tradition of hosting off-site Town Hall meetings to be able to make connections with tribal citizens who live away from the Tribal headquarters.
The first meetings took place in Seattle and two more in California at Irvine and Sacramento. At these meetings citizens were able to meet the Chief, Second Chief and key Wyandotte Nation staff, hear the state of the Tribe, and make connections with family members and other citizens who reside in their local areas.
This year there will be two meetings and the first of these will be held in Grapevine, Texas. The meeting will be at the Courtyard Marriott, 2200 Bass Pro Court, Saturday, March 29 from 10 a.m. to Noon. Lunch will be provided after the meeting and there will be a question and answer session and photo opportunities following lunch.
Postcard invitations were mailed the end of February to all tribal citizens who reside in the state of Texas with a request for an RSVP so the staff will be able to plan for the proper number of attendees. The deadline to register for the Texas meeting is this Friday, March 14.
All Citizens age 18 and over will receive a $50 gift card to help offset travel expenses. Spouses and children are welcome to attend all activities.
The second Town Hall meeting will be held in the Denver, Colo., area April 26. Invitations will be mailed the week of March 24 to everyone who resides in the state of Colorado. More information will be coming soon regarding the second meeting.
If you have any questions regarding either meeting, please contact Dana Butterfield at (918) 678-6319.
