What % of your bloodline. For instances, Full-Blooded, 1/2, 1/4, 1/16. Most tribes have a certain criteria for establishing tribal enrollment.

Anastacia Zapatecas what will happen ten generations from now will everybody have to marry their cousins to keep the bloodline thick enough to be considered a tribal member
I get why it matters I also think we would be limiting the tribe from exsisting.

Anastatia, Most tribes these days go by Lineal Descent and require Tribal Members to be related to at least one out of four or five Original Tribal Members when their Tribe was first recognized by the Federal Government. I do not agree with Blood Quantum. That's a form of Genocide to me. For instance, what if you are 1/2 Pomo and half Sioux? Your Tribe can legally only count the Pomo, if the Tribe is Pomo and say you are only 1/2 Native. When really, you're full blooded Native.

Thankful for being asked to sign this petition.Much of the decision who can stay or go belongs directly on the shoulders of this nation. I for one would be glad to go back to when the only thing that mattered is that an elder can look at your actions or your words & know who you are.

How can we represent spirituality and respect for our Elders and Ancestors while we continue to disrespect their blood lines. In my opinion we as Indian People would not exist today if our ancestors did not support families and communities. Is it greed, lack of sense of community, and/or hatred that continues to drive disenrollement? I am a historian who have researched ancestoral linages of tribal and tribal disenrollees and listened to individuals who were disenrolled by their close relatives. Unity and education is our ray of light.

I feel the same they devide and concure. United we stand, divided we fall. We need to unite. They know if we all unite we are strong.Idle No More. I come from Cherokee heritage. My grandmother was 1/2 Cherokee and 1/2 Irish, Last names, Crook & Malone. I am looking into proving it. Family photo show native heritage.

I think the only people who truly should ask for blood quantum is the real Cherokee people. I am Lakota but have seen countless people who want to be native and claim Cherokee blood. I feel badly for the way this country has tarnished a Native People with these types of false claims.Pilamaya Corey Flood.

Corey, I understand where you are coming from but as a NATIVE NATION, we need to stick together. What is good for one is good for all, or vise versa.
