Welcome to the Absentee Shawnee Tribe

Providing Tribal Members With Information.

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe is primarily located in the heart of central Oklahoma with approximately 4,343 as of 3-7-18 enrollment record living in all parts of the world. Our tribal government complex is located in Shawnee Oklahoma. Our logo features Tecumseh, a Shawnee warrior and visionary leader, who worked to unite tribes in a common homeland where Indians could live under their own laws and leaders. He died in October 1813, in battle near the area of present day Thamesville, in Toronto, Canada. The LI-SI-WI-NWI in our logo means "Among the Shawnee".

From the Election Commission

In a joint meeting, on January 22, 2018, between the Executive Committee, the Election Commission and the potential candidates of the upcoming election, a decision was made that the Primary Election on March 17, 2018 will not be held this year.

The decision was made because there were no more than two (2) candidates running for the positions due for election this year. All candidates were advanced to the June Run Off Election which will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018, as required by the Absentee Shawnee Tribal Constitution.
