Who We Are
The Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Association (GPTCA) is made up of the 16 Tribal Chairmen, Presidents and Chairpersons in the states of North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska. The Tribal Leaders of the Sovereign Indian Nations meet quarterly to take action on various matters affecting the Tribes. The primary purpose of the GPTCA is to unify to defend the Tribes inherent rights under our Treaties, to come together in a forum to promote the welfare of the People, take up matters affecting the Tribes and to protect the Sovereignty of each Tribe.
The Great Plains Tribal Chairman’s Association is founded on the principles of unity and cooperation among Indian governments and people of the Great Plains; respect for the unique and several interests of its member Tribes; the pursuit of security and protection of treaty-based and other sovereign rights, traditional and contemporary cultural and religious rights and practices; and promotion of the common interest and welfare and the enhancement of the quality of life of Indian and Native peoples.
