Little River Band of Ottawa Indians
Little River Band of Ottawa Indians is a federally recognized tribe of Ottawa Indians whose headquarters are located on their 1836 reservation in Manistee, Michigan. They also own lands in their 1855 reservation in Custer Township, Mason County ( ). They represent 9 villages or bands of the original Grand River Bands. The Tribe became well known in the area after the opening of the Little River Casino and Resort. The tribe's original language is Anishinaabemowin, an Algonquian language. Some elders and members can still speak the full language but the tribe is spread out far beyond their reservation and the language is not in common usage.
Tribal government 
The Tribe is governed by a tripartite constitutional government headed by an elected 9 member Council and an elected Ogema (Chief). There is a separate but equal elected Judicial branch. The government has 28 different departments dealing with various programs and processes necessary to running a modern government.
