KIC tribal members started this petition to KIC Coordinator

Our purpose for this Special KIC meeting is to approve Resolution KIC-CY-0046-2019 to revert back to our original Constitution & Bylaws of the Kiowa Indian Tribe, est. 1970. Effective immediately, at the very moment should the Kiowa Indian Council (KIC) approve the KIC resolution and vote in favor to revert back to our original constitution during a special election, our original constitution shall be effective immediately and the New Constitution ratified on April 17, 2017 shall immediately be considered null and void. Following approval to revert back to our original constitution, a new election to elect a new Kiowa Business Committee (KBC) shall immediately occur based on Article VI, Section 1 of our original constitution. 

Article V, Section 4b of the New Constitution states, "Special Meetings of the Council may be called upon request of six Legislators or by petition signed by four-hundred Members of the Tribe who are eighteen years of age and older.  The purpose of the Special Meeting shall be indicated in the request for the Special Meeting and no other business shall be conducted at the Special Meeting.

The Election Commission shall validate petitions for Special Meetings.  All requests for a Special Meeting shall be submitted to the Coordinator of the Office of the Council.  Upon receipt of a request from the Legislature or a valid petition of the People, the Coordinator shall call the Special Meeting."   Article V, Section 5c of the New Constitution states, "All decisions of the Council shall be embodied in a written resolution.  All proposed resolutions shall be submitted to the Coordinator for consideration by the Council in accordance with the requirements of this Constitution. 

The Coordinator for the Office of the Council shall accept proposed resolutions which are submitted at least forty-five days before a Meeting, and all such resolutions shall be placed on the agenda of the Special Meeting called to consider such resolution, or upon the agenda of the next Annual Meeting.  No item shall be placed on an agenda for a Tribal Council Meeting unless such item has been submitted to the Coordinator in writing at least forty-five days before the Tribal Council Meeting.  The Coordinator shall publish all resolutions to be considered at a Meeting of the Council at least thirty days before the Meeting. 

  • Resolution KIC-CY-0046-2019 had been received by the predecessor KIC Coordinator Davetta Geimausaddle on February 15, 2019. Resolution KIC-CY-0046-2019 had been brought up to topic during the annual April 2019 KIC meeting; had not yet been voted on which is the reason for a Special KIC meeting to occur. 
  • Due to the pandemic of the coronavirus, it is ideal to collect petition signatures online at this time. It is also suggested to have a special KIC meeting online to approve or disapprove Resolution KIC-CY-0046-2019. Should Resolution KIC-CY-0046-2019 be approved by KIC, it is suggested to be followed up with an election to where KIC members can cast their vote online.
