On August 26, 2015, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians announced that it broke ground on Pokégnek Édawat Hartford, its new Tribal Village, located approximately one mile east of Four Winds Hartford, in Hartford, Michigan.

The first phase is expected to be completed in spring of 2016 and will include eight homes consisting of townhomes and two duplexes. Two additional phases are planned at Pokégnek Édawat Hartford and will include more homes, a community center, and a park.

“Pokégnek Édawat Hartford is the latest milestone in our mission to assist Elders, youth, and families with housing, community and self-sufficiency for a better quality of life,” said John P. Warren, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. “We have 39 families on the waiting list for homes in Hartford, so the demand is high. We look forward to completing the additional phases to serve our families in need.”

The homes in Pokégnek Édawat Hartford are managed by the Pokagon Housing and Facilities Department. It offers Pokagon Citizens assistance with home ownership, loans, lease-to-own opportunities, and rental and homeless prevention programs.

The Pokagon Band also has 66 homes, a community center, and health center in Pokégnek Édawat Dowagiac. The Pokagon Band states that both Tribal Villages are examples of what a potential Pokagon development in South Bend, Indiana could look like.
