The Tribe’s realty department has set up a 15-foot-radius cage trapping system in southern Pottawatomie County. It includes 12 panels that bolt together, forming two circles to manage the feral hog population.
As the director of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Real Estate Services Department, Charles Meloy oversees the day-to-day management of Tribal land. He sat down with the Hownikan to discuss how CPN uses its land today and how the department functions.
Collecting survey data helps the Nation make decisions about the land’s makeup and future use. CPN has and continues to conduct feasibility studies to ensure the development benefits the Tribe and its members.
Taking care of the land and providing for the people are core Potawatomi traditions. The Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s Department of Real Estate Services oversees the Nation’s agricultural investments, which uphold these principals.
