When the Brothertown first came together, it was decided that a form of "town government" would be used to guide the Tribe. However, long-held customs strongly influenced this different approach to governance. It never looked exactly like "town government," but evolved over many generations and a number of moves by the Tribe, and has continued to evolve. The four officers and five members of the Council are now elected by the membership at large.
