Code of Laws & Constitution

Preamble to the Red Cliff Constitution
“We the members of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians in the State of Wisconsin, in order to re-establish our tribal organization; to conserve our tribal property; to develop our common resources; to promote the welfare of ourselves and our descendants; to form business and other organizations; to enjoy certain rights of home rule; and to provide for our people education in vocational and trade schools and institutions of higher learning, do ordain and establish this constitution and by-laws. When adopted by the membership and approved by the Secretary of the Interior, this constitution shall supersede the previously adopted and approved Indian Reorganization Act Constitution of June 1936."
