Attendance was estimated at 125 people, with 86 voting members present. Chief Harper provided updates on the Peoria Tribal programs and enterprises, as well as having staff provide updates. In addition, each department within the Peoria Tribe was present to provide information and welcome attendees. A special guest from Illinois State Museum was in attendance and displayed numerous artifacts that are part of the Peoria Archeological collection at Illinois State Museum. The day was concluded with a ground breaking at the former Miami Country Club, where Chief Harper unveiled the plans for the future Peoria Campus with will include Woodland Academy Learning Center and Peoria Longhouse Community Center.

The new website is a few weeks old and we are excited about the comments we have received so far.  There is still work to do, on the website, but we are happy with the new format and look.  The staff is learning the “ins and outs” of how to make changes and add new information and we look forward to the opportunity to provide new information and updates.
