11/03/08 - Tribal membership up for vote

Author:

As Native people, we vote on issues most people would not imagine, such as determining enrollment criteria for tribal citizenship one of the most contentious issues facing our communities today.

Tribal enrollment will be on the Tuesday ballot when citizens of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation in North Dakota go to the polls. Tribal members will be asked to choose enrollment criteria based on either "blood quantum" or "lineal descendancy."
