Skowkale First Nation is governed under a Family Representative system. With four (4) main families, there is one (1) Councillor selected through a nomination and election process for each family. At a nomination meeting, if only one member is nominated to represent a family, they are elected by acclamation. However, if more than one member is nominated to represent a family, the names go on a ballot for the entire electorate to help select the representative.

The Chief is selected via a nomination and election process to represent the community as a whole, and does so with the guidance of the people and councillors.

The 2021-2025 Council Team is comprised of:
Chief Mark Point
Councillor Willy Hall
Councillor Teressa Galis
Councillor Darcy Paul
Councillor Tiffany Silver
