The Tunica-Biloxi Indians Political Action Committee (TBIPAC) was the first Native-American PAC established in the State of Louisiana. The TBIPAC is responsible for political and community outreach for the Tunica Biloxi Tribe and its enterprises while working with local, state, and federal officials on important issues to the tribe and its businesses. The TBIPAC’s advocacy on behalf of the Tribe includes issues regarding sovereignty, taxes, gaming and any other issues that could impact the Tribe and its businesses.
The TBIPAC services the area with local and state officials in order to progressively move issues forward in the interests of the Tunica Biloxi Tribe and all its citizens by defending the rights in local and state jurisdictions as it relates to issues that involve the Tunica Biloxi Tribe. The TBIPAC is also responsible for monitoring all political elections that may impact the tribe and its businesses.
The TBIPAC services all tribal member families by protecting sovereign rights and the day-to-day issues dealing with protecting the interests of the Tunica Biloxi Tribe such as gaming, taxation, social service issues, and political challengers who try to impose their will and their rights on the Tribe.
The TBIPAC is involved in three major fundraisers with the goal of gathering donations to use for political contributions, issues and referendums, and offset administrative costs. To date, TBIPAC has given more than $325,000 in political donations.
