  • Duncan Fisher
  • Alvin Ameelyenah
  • David Harper
  • Ray Aspa, Sr.
  • Herman TJ Laffoon
  • Edward Yava, Sr.

The Special Election will be held on Friday, February 13. Tribal offices will be closed that day to allow all Tribal members to vote. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The polling locations are:

The new council member will join the new Tribal Chairman, Eldred Enas, and the five other members of the Tribal Council elected in the December regular Tribal elections. The nine-person Tribal Council also includes the two incumbent council members, Dennis Welsh and Richard Armstrong.
