In addition to these daily activities, the Enrollment Office is making a concerted effort, to update current tribal membership records.  Updating includes ensuring proper documentation for each tribal member.

Photo Tribal Membership cards are issued for members over the age of 18.  The basis of the photo card is to place the Tribal members’ picture on their enrollment card.  The intent of the picture is to assist tribal members with peace of mind by decreasing the risk of identity fraud, in case the Tribal Membership card is lost or stolen.
