Welcome to the DOTC Website!
On   November   30th,   2012,   the   Council   of   Chiefs   approved   the   10   Year   (2012-2022)   DOTC Strategic Plan.
Our   leadership,   senior   management   and   program   managers   have   created   an   environment within   DOTC   so   that   people   who   want   to   invest   in   our   Tribal   Council   will   invest   because   they believe their investment has a good chance of paying off.
An   investor   is   anybody   with   time,   or   enegry   or   ideas   or   skills   or   good   will   or   dollars   that   is willing to bet those assets on DOTC's future.
Investors   have   choices.   If   they   don't   see   a   decent   possibility   of   a   payoff   here,   there   is   little   to stop them from going somewhere else or doing something different.
Investing   into   our   Tribal   Council   may   consist   of   monetary   profits,   realizing   satisfaction   in   a   job well done and/or focus on commitment to raising the quality of life within our communities.
It   may   also   be   about   reducing   dependence   on   the   federal   government   or,   to   bolster   tribal sovereignty.
Dakota   Ojibway   Tribal   Council   is   the   ideal   level   where   the   importance   of   basic   institutional infrastructure   can   be   demonstrated   for   the   benefit   of   all   it   serves   -   member   First   Nations, Members and Investors.
DOTC    is    capable    of    effectively    pursuing    our    stated    goals,    provide    our    members    with opportunities    to    productive    and    satisfying    lives,    dealing    with    internal    differences    and disputes   fairly   and   effectively,   without   tearing   the   Tribal   Council   apart,   and   we   are   capable   of establishing    and    maintaining    productive,    mututally    beneficial    relationships    with    other nations, communities, organizations and societies.
Our    10    Year    Strategic    Plan    specifies    DOTC's    purpose    and    function,    setting    and    clarifying DOTC"s   future   direction;   providing   an   overall   framework   for   improvement   and   innovation; accommodating   and   adapting   to   changing   environments   and   engaging   in   teamwork   and   unity of effort in a given direction.
We   have   updated   the   history   of   DOTC   and   our   respective   programs,   developed   an   internal and   external   mind   map   for   the   respective   programs   and   an   environmental   scan   on   current and future issues and trends that will affect our respective programs and services.
We   have   updated   our   Vision   Statement   with   a   commitment   to   develop   a   view/perspective   of what   we   want   our   Tribal   Council   to   look   like   in   the   future.   It   is   a   statement   of   aspiration.   The vision will provide the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council with a sense of how things can be.
It   challenges   the   leaders,   managers   and   members   to   assist   and   work   together   in   making   it   a reality.
Having   considered   the   information   received   and   deliberated,   DOTC   Council   of   Chiefs   upon deliberation   and   taking   into   account   all   the   information,   DOTC   Council   of   Chiefs   have   adopted the statement below to serve as an updated vision statement for the Tribal Council:
Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council seeks to promote and enhance the quality of life for its members and attain the same opportunities and aspirations as those experienced by citizens elsewhere in Canada”
