Chairman David Arroyo
David Michael Arroyo NdoNoozwin. My maternal grandparents are Dennis and Delia (Hall) Shawandase. I was born in Grand Rapids Michigan. Our family relocated to Leelanau County over 30 years ago. I graduated from Northport Public School. I currently reside in Suttons Bay Michigan. I am married and have four children.
I am serving a third term on Tribal Council; having been first elected in 2004. Prior to serving on Tribal Council, I was an employee for our Economic Development Corporation. In 1990, I was hired at the Bingo Palace and then after two years, I transferred to the Leelanau Sands Casino. I also had the opportunity of working at Turtle Creek Casino as well.
It is an honor and privilege to serve and represent the Membership of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
