The Saginaw-Chippewa Indian Tribe is headquartered on the Isabella Reservation, adjacent to the city of Mt. Pleasant, in Isabella County. The reservation is just off the U.S. 27 South about 65 miles north of Lansing, Michigan (State Capital) and within two hour drives of Michigan’s major populations’ hubs including Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, Bay City and Grand Rapids. The tribal reservation was established under the Treaty of October 18, 1864. The Saginaw-Chippewa was the last of the four original founding tribal groups that led to the establishment of the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan in 1966. The tribe’s service area includes six townships in Isabella County, and Bay and Arenac Counties.
