The leader of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians is squashing rumors that his days as tribal chairman are over.

Matt Wesaw, who was elected as chairman back in fall of 2009, tells NewsCenter16 that any reports regarding his resignation from the Pokagon Band are false.

He admits that earlier this week he was selected by the Michigan Civil Rights Commission to become the next director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.

Wesaw says that while he announced the job offer during a tribal council meeting Saturday morning he does still hold his position as Pokagon Chair.

He admits that it would be difficult to hold both positions at the same time.
