Constitutional Amendment Project

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is working on a project to present changes to the Tribe’s Constitution to the voters—the Pascua Yaqui People. The Tribal Council can ask the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to hold an election to change the Constitution, but it’s up to YOU- the voter to vote for important constitutional changes.
