More about the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi Indians
The Huron Band, owners of Firekeepers Casino, is part of the Potawatomi Indians of the Great Lakes Region, whose ancestors ceded millions of acres of land in Michigan to the United States. In the 1840s, Tribal members were forced to cede the remainder of their "reserved lands," along the "Notawasepe" and were forcibly relocated to Kansas, Iowa, and Oklahoma. Under the leadership of Chief Moguago, Huron Band members either avoided forced relocation or, soon after relocation, returned to their native Michigan.
In 1995, the status of the Huron Band as an Indian Tribe was reaffirmed, making the tribe a sovereign nation having a nation-to-nation relationship with the federal government. The mission of the Tribe is to provide leadership for Tribal members and serve as a model to other Native Americans in areas of self-government, self-reliance, and self-empowerment. The Tribe's goal is to provide its membership the best in healthcare, educational opportunities, housing and economic opportunities as a sovereign Native American nation.
The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) issued a Reservation Proclamation in 2007 designating the 79-acre parcel of land as the initial reservation for the Tribe. The Federal Register published the Proclamation confirming the tribe's trust land in Emmett Charter Township is suitable for gaming. In December 2006, the Secretary of the Interior placed the land into trust for the Tribe for the purpose of gaming, seven years after the Tribe first applied to the BIA.
There are approximately 800 Tribal members of the Huron Band.
