Registered American Indians??

Posted by   + Show Post
So I'm a registered American Indian of the chtimatchan tribe in Louisiana. Every year I get per capita payments and I'm never met anyone else that gets payments or knows they can. Are their any registered Indians on here that get their per capita payments??

Yes she can.. Both actually although some tribes frown upon that..


Quoting Anonymous:

No. My mother is half kickapoo, half navajo. Would she be able to register with either tribe?

If you can show proof of blood lineage and are in the required percentage of the tribe yes you can register

I'm 1/16 and qualify but feel as if I should not. I don't know enough about my roots and I feel it would be disrespectful.

Per capita payments? Ours is a yearly payment basically for being Indian

Her mothers family still lives on res in oklahoma. But mom always figured that since she's a "mutt" she wouldn't be able to register

My husband has a rolls card he is Cherokee. They don't get checks. Our old roommate when we lived in Oklahoma was also registered with his tribe (don't remember which) he did get a check every few months or so

my husband is cherokee and he doesnt get anything

I would say register with the one that her mom still lives on.. Like I said registering with both is some times frowned upon in the tribe (which is ridiculous because the whole point of registration is to have an accurate count of how many are in the tribe) but it won't be an issue to register with either just because she's mixed

not interested in payments but DH is part native american. he wants to find out from which tribe. His mom was either 1/2 or 1/4th. His mom's parents lived in LA. He thinks he is going to have to pay to research it, like through ancestry.com or something. Do you know if there is another way?


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
