After months of collaboration between our tribe’s Language Program and Mango Languages, a language-training company, the first chapter of our Potawatomi Language Course has launched. This is the first of ten chapters planned for phase one of the course.

Do you want to hunt on tribal properties? Have you taken hunter safety? To hunt on tribal properties, the completion of a hunter safety course is required prior to a license being issued. The Pokagon Band Department of Natural Resources is continuing the hunter safety reimbursement program where new hunters can be reimbursed for taking hunter safety. In the past, the DNR has held hunter safety classes, however, due to low interest and lack of attendance over the past several years, the DNR has switched to a reimbursement program.
