19th Annual State of the Tribes

Yesterday’s 2023 State of the Tribes Address delivered from the State Capitol in Madison was  given by Sokaogon Chippewa Community Chairman Robert VanZile.  Many topics were covered and called on state lawmakers to help improve rural health care, fight the opioid crisis and tackle environmental issues. Additionally, Chairman VanZile   called on state lawmakers Tuesday to work with tribal leaders as they craft their budget this year. “Every budget cycle, there is an opportunity for local, county, state, and tribal governments to collaborate on critical services and investments to bring greater efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of those services,” VanZile said.

Another moment of pride for the Brothertown Indian Nation was the recognition of the Tribe by Chairman Robert VanZile to Jessica Ryan Vice -Chair who was in attendance. Also attending and representing the Tribe were Dawn Kraintz-Council and Melissa Kavonius-Secretary   The entire State of the Tribes can be viewed here…
