About this website
Bozho/Hello. Welcome to the District #2 website. This site offers information to Citizen Potawatomis and their families throughout the District of Columbia and the 13 Southeastern States that make up our region: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Florida. Much of what's here also may be useful to Citizen Potawatomis in other parts of the country (and even the world -- I know the site gets visitors from Germany, France, Italy, Uganda, and Australia) and you also are welcome! I am open to suggestions for improvements and different or additional content and look forward to hearing from you.
Please take the time to look around the site. You'll find information on (1) Services (what the Nation offers and what the Indian Health Service offers us in District #2), (2) Heritage (CPN and U.S. eagle feather application forms, traditional stories, and more), (3) Photos of events around our District and in Oklahoma, and (4) my HowNiKan articles, which report on District events and Legislative initiatives. There's a lot of information to explore. Also, please click on the highlighted calendar dates for upcoming Potawatomi-focused events in our District or in Shawnee, and email me if you have events of general interest to our community that you'd like me to add to the calendar.
Please feel free to contact me by phone, e-mail or US mail. My contact details are at the bottom of the page and on the "Your Legislator" page. I look forward to hearing from you. Migwetch.
