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??

When I lived there I went to Talihina, drove from Antlers. My mom still goes to Talihina.

Quoting MrS.ACosTa190:

I also have a card, do you go to talihina hospital or idabel?

Quoting lacyleanne:

I have a choctaw card in oklahoma, but I don't get payments. I get college paid for and medical and some other things but no payments. My moms ex is choctaw too and he gets a check every month for rent but that's because he doesn't have a job.


Also, I'm getting a $300 clothing allowance next semester for getting good grades.

Yaqui are bad ass. Have you read the book, Aztec by Gary Jennings? He describes the original tribe from the point of view of an Aztec during the Spanish Invasion around 1500 A.D.

My son is 1/16 Turtle Mt. I haven't and probably won't register him. If he was 1/2 I probably would but I don't think its fair to register him plus I think this tribe cuts off after 1/16.

My kids are registered at 1/8th.. Most will pay for colleg which is the only reason I bothered registering them. With my tribe they could go to any college they want and everything be paid for

My dad is half Cherokee. We just recently found out about the college program. My brother got a check for college. He will get one every semester. I guess we should see what else we are entitled to.
