The Media Department provides information to the Tribe through the printing of The Absentee Shawnee News, the monthly tribal newsletter. The Media Department is also responsible for posting announcements and events on the Absentee Shawnee Tribe’s website, and Facebook page,

We also print General Council books and in-house jobs for the various departments within the Absentee Shawnee Tribe and we are now open to the public for printing.

If you have an article you would like placed in the newsletter please call the phone number listed below or send an email. Just be aware that we will not print controversial or adversarial articles. To be considerate of everyone on the birthday page, we can only print one picture of the birthday person.
