Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Tribal Council Chairperson Appointed to National Council

Jamie Stuck to Serve on Health Resources and Services Administration Tribal Advisory Council

On March 22, 2024, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) welcomed Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi (NHBP) Tribal Council Chairperson Jamie Stuck, of Scotts, Michigan, to the HRSA Tribal Advisory Council (TAC).

As a TAC Delegate and designated tribal official from NHBP, Stuck will serve as the Bemidji Area Delegate for a two-year term, which further demonstrates his deep-rooted commitment to improving the health and wellness of those he serves.

“Bringing to light the disproportionate health disparities our Indigenous Communities face through this council is a huge honor,” said Stuck. “I am humbled to serve all the Tribal Citizens in the Bemidji Area as its delegate to the Health Resources and Services Administration Tribal Advisory Council.”

Established in 2021, the TAC provides a forum for meetings between elected tribal officials (or their designated representatives) and HRSA officials to exchange views, share information and seek advice concerning intergovernmental responsibilities related to the implementation and administration of HRSA programs.

The TAC helps ensure that tribes have meaningful and timely input into HRSA policies, programs and priorities. The TAC thus supports but does not supplant, other government-to-government consultation activities that HRSA undertakes.

This latest appointment to HRSA TAC further demonstrates Stuck’s dedication to improving the health of Indian Country. He currently serves as Bemidji Area Office Primary Delegate to the Advisory Committee, known as the Secretary’s Tribal Advisory Council (STAC) since 2023 and became a member of the Michigan Opioid Advisory Commission (OAC) in January 2024. Closer to home, Stuck leads the NHBP Health Compliance Board and chairs the Journey to Wellness Committee.

Stuck also represents NHBP in other areas of development and community relations, such as education, local community service, as well as Intertribal relations, as he is the Chair of the Native American Heritage Fund Board of Directors, the Treasurer for the FireKeepers Local Revenue Sharing Board and the President of the United Tribes of Michigan.
