Band Council

This is the governing body for a band. It usually consists of a chief and councillors who are elected for two or three-year terms (under the Indian Act or band custom) to carry out band business, which may include education, health, water and sewer, fire services, community buildings, schools, roads, and other community businesses and services. Unless you are naming a specific band (e.g., the Bonaparte Indian Band), the word band should remain lowercase.
