Mackinac Bands seek treatment as separate tribe
The Mackinac Bands of Chippewa and Ottawa Indians of Michigan are asking the Bureau of Indian Affairs to be treated as a federally recognized tribe.

The Mackinac Bands are considered a part of the federally recognized Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. But the bands say they are a distinct and self-governing tribe.

The bands wrote a new constitution to reflect their status.
