Three Affiliated Tribes waiting for election to decide tribal enrollment

New Town, North Dakota (AP) October 2010

Voting members of the Three Affiliated Tribes will decide in the November election whether to change the requirement for tribal enrollment.

The Minot Daily News says the proposed amendment would prohibit lineal descendency, which requires that a tribal member be a descendant of an enrolled member.

If the amendment passes, only those with at least one-eighth Hidatsa, Mandan and/or Arikara blood would be able to enroll.

A second proposed amendment would require candidates for tribal business council or tribal chairman to have a minimum one-fourth Indian blood.
