Erik Rodriguez is the Interim Public Relations Director for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe.
He said the plates allow tribal members to show pride in their heritage.
“ We’re just excited about the opportunity to be able to show our sovereign right to be able to have that self governance within the tribe. It gives the members an opportunity it gives the certain communities an opportunity to realize that what the tribe is able to do on a total government scale within our tribe.”
Rodriguez said the plates are the same price for all tribal members, and are only available to district one members who live within the Isabella reservation boundaries.
