This morning my wife (She's an Ojibwe!) said 'If the Prairie Band Potawatomi elects Eddie Mitchell for Tribal Chairperson, you will be the only tribe in the United States that has a tribal chairperson that can both 'marry and bury'." In the context she was using that phrase was that: Eddie performs traditional marriage ceremonies, and buries our people in our traditional ceremonies.
I had three votes for Eddie in my household (my two sons are enrolled tribal members of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation also!) that went out yesterday in the mail!
