The communications staff directs the communication efforts of the Pokagon Band. By working closely with the Tribal Council, the department develops, coordinates, directs, and administers policies related to all phases of communication, presenting information and the Band’s message via the government’s website, marketing communication, publications, and media relations to a multifaceted audience.
Digitizing communications with Citizens
We are working on digitizing citizen communications, which could include e-mails, text messages and phone calls. First, we want to know what you think, and whether you’d like to provide your preferred e-mail address and mobile phone number to our database. Please update your contact information with Enrollment so we can know how to best communicate Band news and services with you.
Not only does this effort save money and target information to the people who need to receive it, but it preserves Mother Earth by reducing paper use and waste. Among the efforts we are exploring are sending the Pokégnek Yajdanawa electronically. There are no plans to eliminate printed, mailed copies; we’d just like to know if citizens would rather not get the print copy and would prefer to receive the newsletter electronically. Other possibilities: text alerts, e-mail updates and phone calls about topics that are relevant to you. But rest assured, these communications won’t fill up your in boxes with unwanted messages. We’ll use it sparingly on an as-needed basis.
Social Media Use Policy
Tribal Council adopted the Social Media Site Use policy. This policy governs how users interact with the Pokagon tribal government on its Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and other blogging or social networking sites. We encourage anyone who is a user of a Band social media site to read the policy carefully (below).
