Marian McCormick, Principal Chief


Please make sure to be safe during this uncertain time. We will have to use good judgement and make tough decisions. Our March 21, 2020, event has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus.


Make sure to keep your hands washed and use good hygiene. Stay home if at all possible, work from home if it is an option, avoid large crowds, care for our Elders as well as our new born and special population that have health issues.



As the Principal Chief of the Tribe, I would like to encourage each of you to complete your CENSUS FORM. The Census this year is not very long. You can complete it on the paper form, by internet or by telephone.


Question # 1 how many people live in your house

Question # 2 “were there any additional people staying in your home on April 1, 2020.” Question # 3 this a house, apartment or mobile home.

Question #4 what is your telephone number.

Question # 5 name of the first person in your home.

Question # 6 person #1’s sex.

Question # 7 person # 1’s age and birth date

Question # 8 skip

Question # 9 person # 1’s race

   Mark American Indian or Alaska Native



Remember to LET OUR VOICE AND NUMBERS COUNT. The Census means a lot to each member of this Tribe. Using the Statistic that is collected in the 2020 Census helps our tribe get the statistic that we need to apply for grants, calculates how many State Representatives in the Georgia General Assembly, calculates how many Congressmen we have representing us in Congress, helps get roads resurfaced, school funding and much more.
